A You Tube video that has gone viral has generated fierce debate on social media about whether or not it’s OK to intervene when a child is disturbing others in a public place.

WARNING: Graphic language

As you’ll see on the video, reportedly shot at Albany Hospital in upstate New York, before the recording begins, a mother was in the hospital restaurant talking on the phone for at least 20 minutes while her baby screamed nonstop. Another woman came over to offer assistance and and the mother said she didn’t need it.

But the supposed Good Samaritan who said she was trying to ‘help’ wouldn’t leave the mother’s table and the mother got increasingly agitated as patrons not only started recording the incident but called police when the two got physical.

Was the woman who came over to the table in the right to be concerned about the child? Or was the mother right in saying the woman should have walked away instead of remaining where she wasn’t wanted after she was asked to leave? Or were they both at fault?
