Good Samaritan helping lost toddler in Florida gets beat up by parent, Facebook shamed

LAKELAND, Fla. (WFLA) — A so-called good Samaritan trying to help a lost toddler got quite the thank you, a beat down and social media shaming.

On Saturday, June 24, the Lakeland Police Department responded to a disturbance at the Southwest Sports Complex.

During a game, a 2-year-old child got separated from her parents.

According to Lakeland police, a citizen who was at the at the game visiting with a few friends noticed the young girl wandering by herself and believed that she was lost. The citizen attempted to ask the girl where her parents were and walked with her in hopes she could point them out. At least one independent witness stated they observed the citizen walking with the child trying to help find her parents.

That is why I always say, "Never get involved". I drive right past stranded motorists, hitchhikers, accidents, cars in ditches, crying children.

A friend of mine saw a man beating his wife outside a convenience store. He got involved, and ended up getting a beating from both the Husband and the wife who was getting the beating! I knew better, but called the police. I was working at the store at the time.

Maybe he should have been watching his own kid and the kid wouldn't have had time to be "lost"

2:10 is exactly correct. It is sad but true, that society turns you into a mine your own business way of life. Same as wanting to help someone that ask for a dollar. You have to turn them down due to chancing it being a scam.

4:02 I was thinking the same thing. They should have charged the father with assault and child neglect.

He should have just called 911.

I would say sue them but something is saying, he will not get anything but a set of 21 inch wheels and a boom box.
