When a quick-thinking Florida waitress noticed that a young boy at her restaurant was oddly quiet, had no food and appeared to have multiple injuries on his face — while the rest of his family were talking and enjoying their meal — she knew something was wrong.
Flaviane Carvalho, who works at a popular family-owned restaurant in Orlando, wrote a note that said, “Do you need help,” and secretly held it up while standing in a spot where only the child could see her. The 11-year-old initially hesitated but eventually signaled yes, prompting her to call the police.
The brave server is now being credited with saving the life of a boy who police said was being tortured, beaten, handcuffed and even hung upside down from a door as a sickening form of punishment.
“We probably would be talking about a homicide investigation if she had not intervened,” Police Chief Orlando Rolón told reporters at an emotional news conference Thursday.
The victim’s mother and stepfather are now facing multiple charges, including child neglect and aggravated child abuse. The boy and his 4-year-old sister, who was not injured, have been taken into state custody and are both safe.
