A well-known Chilean doctor who was caught on tape throwing an injured dog outside elevator doors has outraged people in South America.
Patricia Valdebenito was minding her own business in the elevator with a border collie - believed to be a guide dog - when ophthalmologist Carlos Schiappacasse enters with his two daughters.
The eye-doctor from Vina Del Mar looks furious about the dog sitting inside the elevator.
He grabs the hound by the back of the neck and throws it out of the doors and attempts to shove Ms Valdebenito out also.
The shocked maid stands her ground and argues back at the doctor.
The video posted to YouTube on Sunday includes Ms Valdebenito, a nany, account of what happened.
"(He) started to attack me and (told me to) leave the elevator, that was not my place, I told him I would not go down, so suddenly take the animal and throws off lift and then push me."
Ms Valdebenito also asked the doctor if he was discriminating against her because of her job.
The dog's owner, Carlos Salgado, said the doctor's actions were cowardly.
Dr Schiappacasse has reportedly left for Miami in the US since the incident but this has not been confirmed.
