A disturbing video that shows a young child dying in the backseat of a van is causing outrage across the United States.
In the clip, a young boy sits on the ground as the van drives down the street in a driveway, before being driven to a nearby hospital.
At one point, the driver can be heard shouting “get off my road, get off my highway”, before the boy is pulled from the back seat and into a hospital.
The video has been shared more than 500,000 times on Facebook, where it has been viewed more than 1 million times.
The boy was sitting in the front seat when the van was travelling down the road and the video shows the van driver asking the boy, “What are you doing?
Get out of the car.””
Get out of here,” the driver tells the boy.
The child can be seen on a hospital bed screaming as the driver tries to pull him out of his seat.
He is then seen being taken to the back of the van.
Police say the driver is now facing charges of child endangerment, child abuse and leaving the scene of an accident.
The van, which was stopped in a Walmart parking lot in Missouri, is now being examined by police and investigators are examining the video for further evidence.
“The driver of the vehicle in question was arrested on Thursday, July 31, 2018 for driving under the influence of alcohol,” a police statement read.
“He was later released on a $1,000 recognizance bond, pending his return to court on August 1, 2018.”
