KTLA’s Lu Parker interviews Orlando waitress Flavaine Carvalho who shares her story of stepping in to save a young boy when she knew something was terribly wrong. Police say he was being tortured and starved, and likely would have died if she didn’t act. The boy’s parents were arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse, and child neglect.

If you’d like to help, there’s a GO FUND ME for Flavaine, and a trust that’s been set up for the children.
