Police rushed over to the home of teen parents after a video showed them severely abusing their own child, according to police in Australia.
Melbourne police confirmed that they visited the home of the teen parents and made sure that the child was safe and well.
They also notified the Department of Health and Human Services about the abuse.
So far, no charges have been filed.
The 13-year-old father and 14-year-old mother recently recorded a Snapchat video, which showed them pouring water on their baby son.
Moments later, the video showed them placing a gray plastic bag on the boy’s head.
The baby can be heard crying and struggling to breathe.
The couple wrote that their son will surely die tonight.
The father told viewers that he was not a child abuser as he was just disciplining his baby.
He said that nobody could tell him whether he was allowed to hit his child.
The boy also warned that he would slap anyone who told him he couldn’t abuse his child.
The mother was heard laughing in the background.
The children covered their faces with large smiley emojis.
