After the boy explained to his mother what happened, she pulled the CCTV footage to confirm. She then notified the authorities.
“At first I thought my boy tripped himself, but later he told me that the woman tripped him, which was confirmed by other customers in the shop,” the boy's mother told the China Youth Daily, according to the South China Morning Post. “I checked the CCTV and was so angry that I called the police.”
The pregnant woman later apologized and offered to pay the boy's medical expenses.
“Police said they would detain her for 10 days and penalize her 1,000 yuan (US$160), but she is seven months pregnant," the boy's mother told the newspaper.
According to reports, the mother is happy with the result. She's also glad the woman won't go to jail.
She told China Youth Daily: “We do not wish to affect her. I have children myself. I can understand.”
