This is the moment a woman repeatedly hits a nurse over the head as she tries to give her grandson an IV drip.

The 61-year-old grandmother surnamed Chen, who has since been arrested, had brought the two-year-old boy with a high fever but was not satisfied with the way the nurse surnamed Jiang was handling the crying child.

CCTV cameras from the First Hospital of Pinghu, a city in East China’s Zhejiang Province, shows the nurse standing next to the boy, who was accompanied by his grandmother as well as his parents.

Seemingly without warning, the nan Chen suddenly strikes the nurse over the head as she prepares to give the boy the IV drip in his arm, leaving the stunned 30-year-old reeling backwards.

Other nurses try to stop the assault, but the grandmother had already managed three or four blows to the nurse’s head.

Witnesses said the attack carried on for "a whole three minutes", and neither her daughter or son-in-law tried to stop her.

Pinghu City policeman Yao Lei said the incident happened when the nurse tried to hold the crying boy down to administer the IV drip.

"The grandmother saw some blood in the corner of the boy’s mouth and thought he had been harmed by the nurse, so she lost her temper," the officer added.

The nurse, who did not respond to the assault, filed charges and was cleared of wrongdoing, while the grandmother was fined 200 RMB (22 GBP) and jailed for 10 days.

Jiang says she does not know where the blood came from.
