ORLANDO, Fla. (WVLT/WTSP) - Police in Florida are praising an Orlando waitress after she helped rescue a boy from “dangerous abuse.”

According to WTSP, Flavaine Carvalho was working at a restaurant New Year’s Day when she saw a family withholding food from an 11-year-old boy at one of the tables. Investigators said she also saw bruises on his body.

That prompted her to take action. Carvalho secretly made a note asking the boy if he needed help. When the child signaled “yes,” officers said she called police.

According to WTSP, the child’s mother and stepfather were arrested.
