Florida Waitress Rescues Child Abused by Parents
A quick-witted waitress saved the boy from abuse after his parents refused him food in a Florida restaurant. Tells about it New York Post.
Flaviana Carvalho, who works at Mrs. Potato, in Orlando, was serving a table for four on New Years when she noticed no food had been ordered for an 11-year-old boy, city police said.
According to the woman, the boy was thin, with bruises on his face and arms.
Carvalho did not hold back and showed the boy a sign that read: "Are you okay?"
The boy gave a signal: "No". Carvalho showed another sign behind his parents: "Do you need help?"
Police said Carvalho immediately called the police, who arrived at the restaurant to question the boy and his parents.
“I am also a mother, and it was very strange for me, because the child is not denied food, especially in the restaurant,” Carvalho said at a press conference. "Thank God the boy is safe now."
The child's stepfather, Timothy Wilson, is accused of beating the boy with a broom and fists and handcuffing to furniture at home, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.
