Tragically, most of the cases of physical abuse occur in private places where there are no witnesses. Physical violence is a very delicate subject that happens all too often.

Most people would claim that they would always help a stranger in need, but the captured footage proves otherwise. This Italian YouTube channel set up a social experiment to see how people would react when they witness violence against women. Unfortunately most of the people didn’t even bother to stop after seeing a woman getting beat up by a larger man and decided to carry on and ignore the violence!

Creators of this video weren’t sure how people would react to this social experiment so they installed a hidden camera in the local park, and hired two actors who tried their best to create physical tension right in front of the camera and in the eye of the public.

Research shows that 1 in 4 women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime, and the case is even worse in the United States according to statistics of The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. On average, twenty people per minute are physically abused, which amounts to roughly 10 million cases per year. A fourth of all men is a victim of physical abuse and the same counts for over a third of all women in the US.

This event occurred on a busy walking path and twenty people in total passed by during the filming. The abuse gradually escalated as the man started with pushes and held the woman in a chokehold, after which he started hitting her to aggravate the situation. Unfortunately, only four of the twenty people who walked by the scene tried to intervene. Everyone else just walked or ran away as if nothing was going on at all.

It is such a shame to see that the majority of the people here simply chose to ignore this clear case of abuse, but the man praised the actions of the four people who intervened. The social experiment is definitely a shocking eye-opener. What would you do in a situation like this?
