An angry dad was filmed by a lift camera as he slaps his 12-year-old daughter so hard her head cracks the lift mirror because she spent too much time by the pool.

The incident was filmed in a residential complex in the neighbourhood of Yesilkent in the district of Esenyurt in the Turkish province of Istanbul.

The father, named as Syrian national M.A., 45, was angry at his 12-year-old daughter because she spent too much time by the pool, and he went to bring her back home.

He allegedly assaulted her by the pool before continuing the row in the lift, where a CCTV camera filmed the man slapping the girl so hard her head hit the mirror and cracked it.

The footage shows the girl holding her head after breaking the mirror and her father then grabs her hand and leads her out of the lift.

According to the news site Haberler, the police, who took action after the video was widely shared on social media, detained M. A. on 15th August.
