The call was released by Greater Manchester Police as part of the launch of a major campaign against domestic violence before the World Cup starts.
The boy can be heard pleading ‘help, help it’s my mum and dad’ as the woman screams for help in the background and another child can be heard crying.
Greater Manchester Police say they went to the scene but neither parent would give any information about the incident and said they did not want any police involvement.
