PARENTS OF THE TODDLER who was videoed handcuffed to a pillar, turned themselves into the police and the Child Care Board (CCB) yesterday.

The mother, Dania Hamilton, has written an apology to her son on social media, explaining that it was an “unfortunate” incident of child’s play gone wrong. The video, she said, was recorded by the boy’s father as a funny one and shared in a group of male friends.

The father was heard admonishing the boy for stealing his watch.
