A group of adults were filmed brawling in a playground in southern China after their children argued over toys.

Video clips of the adults fighting at a shopping centre in Shenzhen on Saturday started circulating online, attracting a string of lurid rumours, news portal People.com.cn reported.

In the footage, a number of men can be seen throwing punches and kicks, and grappling with each other.

At one point, one of the participants starts throwing toys from the playground around.

A man was left sprawled on the ground at the end of the incident – when staff at the shopping centre intervened to stop the fight.

The Shenzhen police department issued a statement the next day to deny claims circulating on social media that one participant had been seriously injured and left in a vegetative state.

Instead, the force’s Weibo account said, one person had suffered minor injuries.

Police said the adults involved were “under police control” and the case was under investigation, but did not give further details.

In January, a similar fight happened in a shopping centre in Hangzhou, capital of east China’s Zhejiang province. The mothers of two three-year-olds became involved in a scuffle after the toddlers started fighting over a toy.

One of the boys’ fathers then joined in, beating the mother and grandmother of the other boy.

Hangzhou Daily reported that he was later ordered by police to pay compensation to the other family.
