    A video of a heavily pregnant woman hitting her swollen belly with a hammer has appeared online.
    The five-second video was shot on a smartphone in October 2012 and is the product of 24-year-old Heather Thorpe and her then-boyfriend Sean Hanlon, 26, both from the West Midlands in the UK. It shows Thorpe striking herself twice, apparently to demonstrate the toughness of her unborn son. "My baby's hard as anything -- just watch this," Thorpe reportedly told Hanlon at the time, just weeks before the child was born.

    When social workers visited Thorpe and the six-week-old child, the proud mother bragged that he could perform a rude gesture on command.

    Hanlon showed police the video after Thorpe accused him of domestic abuse. The police however, said the behavior doesn't constitute an offence. Thorpe has not been charged with any crime.
