Two teenagers are being investigated by police after horrifying footage appeared to show them putting a plastic bag over a child's head.

The toddler can be seen trying to pull the bag off as he struggled to breathe during the distressing Snapchat clip.

In another clip, a young child has water continuously poured into its mouth.

As the bag is put on the child, a male voice is heard saying: "We're not child abusers, we're just teaching them discipline.

"Making sure that they're not dead, but they can't breathe."

A boy aged 13 and a 14-year-old girl are suspected of making the footage at a home in Melbourne, Australia, and uploading it to Snapchat.

A police spokesman told Daily Mail Australia : "Police interviewed a 13-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl in relation to a video released on social media.

"They have been released pending summons. The toddler involved is safe and well."

In another video the couple defended themselves, with the male saying: "If I want to slap my child, I'll slap him as much as I want."

Horrified commenters voiced their outrage after the clip went viral.

One wrote: "Vile creatures! Joking about your child dying. I hope he's removed from your ''care'' ASAP."

In a statement, au.news reports, police said: "Concerns were raised for the safety of a toddler as the result of a video and photos posted.

"The toddler has been located safe and well."
