SALEM, N.J. — A New Jersey woman was beaten by another woman Tuesday as her 2-year-old son watched in horror, PIX11 in New York reports.

One of the bystanders made a video recording of the attack (above). However, the only person who made an effort to stop the attack was the young boy.

According to CNN, the police chief in Salem said the fact that no one else tried to intervene is clear evidence of “moral and social breakdown in the fabric of our society.”

The victim, Catherine Ferreira, suffered a broken nose, cuts, bruises and has limited vision in her left eye as a result of the attack, the PIX11 report said.
