Girl, 3, hospitalized after being beaten with brick inside trash can

A Florida man told authorities he witnessed a man severely beating a 3-year-old girl with a brick while she was trapped inside a trash can Thursday.

“If I would have waited three, two more minutes more, he would have killed her,” Sotomayor said.

The girl’s head was bleeding severely, WTVJ reported. She was taken to the hospital, where she remains in critical condition, a police spokeswoman said.

Authorities have taken the girl’s 18-year-old relative into custody, WSVN 7News reported.

The suspect, identified by local media as Tristin Tavares Bernard, was arrested and faces charges of child abuse, aggravated battery and attempted murder.
