Restaurant-worker secretly saves the boy from his abusive parents.

She saw that one of the kids was underweight and had bruises all over his body. That’s when she devised a strategy.

You know how the cops often try to get folks to “say something” when they “see something” that doesn’t seem right?

Indeed, the world would be better if we all stood up and said something, intervened, or contacted the cops anytime we observed something that didn’t seem right.

This was the thought of a manager of Mrs Potato restaurant in Orlando, Florida, who chose to intervene when she observed a small boy in danger.

Almost a year ago, a family of four arrived at the restaurant for supper on New Year’s Day.

Flaviane Carvalho, the restaurant manager, saw that one of the two children was thin and didn’t order any food.

The parents didn’t appear to allow the child to order food, but when she inquired whether he was OK, the couple assured her that the boy was well and that he would have dinner at home later.

Carvalho wasn’t persuaded they were being honest with her. She had a hunch, and something deep inside her told her that things weren’t as they seemed.

As a result, she wrote the boy a message inquiring whether he was OK.

The woman, who stood behind the parents, addressed the youngster with a sign, “Are you OK?” Carvalho could have given up when the boy nodded yes, but she was confident that her instincts were correct.

“Sure?” she continued to write, but the youngster nodded again. Just when she was about to give up, she decided to be more direct and wrote, “Do you need help? OK,” she said, knowing she had to move quickly as the youngster nodded again.

Meanwhile, she’d noted that the youngster had bruises all over his body, which she didn’t think was normal.

She contacted the restaurant owner, who advised her to contact the police.

Carvalho dialled 911, saying:

“We have some customers with two children here.” One of the children has a lot of bruises…”

Police quickly arrived at the restaurant and arrested Timothy Wilson II, 34, the stepfather, who was charged with child abuse.

Kristen Swann, the mother, was also detained on suspicion of child neglect.

According to the authorities, the woman did the right thing, and everyone should do the same in similar situations.

Later, Carvalho discovered that the boy was doing well, that he was being looked after, and that he had gained some weight. It made her delighted.

“I intend to contact him as soon as possible.” It’s as if he was born in my heart that night. Therefore I enjoy following his progress and staying in touch with him for the rest of my life,” she explained.

The emotional bond she felt with this youngster was indescribable.
