Social experiment: Would you jump in if you witnessed domestic violence?

Posted: Updated:

WARNING: Some of the video is disturbing

NBC News - Recent surveillance videos of Ray Rice striking his wife and of Solange Knowles hitting her sister Beyonce's husband Jay-Z have put a spotlight on the issue of domestic abuse.

What would you do if you saw domestic violence happening right in front of you? 

The improv group OckTV and actress Yoying staged a social experiment, portraying both male-on-female and female-on-male scenarios of domestic violence before unsuspecting onlookers. Even though the violence is staged, be advised that some of this video is disturbing.

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
