Video footage of a Chinese toddler smoking in the street as passers-by do nothing to stop him has sparked outrage.

In the clip, the boy, who looks to be no older than three, is seen holding a cigarette and taking puffs on it, while onlookers watch and laugh.

Despite the number of adults around, no one makes a move to take the cigarette away from the boy. A woman does scold the boy for smoking, but does not go beyond chastising him. 

Footage of the video was obtained by video website liveleak.com.
