ALBAWABA - Egypt's public prosecution detained three people pending investigation after a video went viral showing a man posing as a nurse injecting a baby while blindfolded.

According to sources, a man entered a bet with his friends about whether he can inject a child with a medical cannula while he is blindfolded. The incident took place at a facility specialized in caring for newborns in Minya.

In the video, the blindfolded man was seen injecting a 40-day-old child with a medical cannula with assistance from another man, while a third shot the clip.

The video triggered a wave of anger among Egyptians, who called on the authorities to nab the individuals connected with the disturbing clip.

The local media reported that the three men were detained for practicing nursing without a license.
