Brutal treatment: Police in Texas have released this disturbing home surveillance video showing a care provider repeatedly striking an elderly woman
Investigators say Floyd flew into a rage because the elderly woman in her care was feeding her dog ‘human’ food.
The video, recorded by the smart-home system Nest, depicts the caretaker hitting the frail-looking senior citizen numerous times while spewing expletives.
As the gaunt patient with snow-white hair sits in an armchair next to her ginger-colored pet pooch, the home aide approaches her and smacks her over the head with what appears to be considerable force.
‘Get your a** up and go to f***ing bed!’ Floyd is heard in the video yelling at her seemingly helpless charge. ‘Go ahead, damn it!’
She delivers five blows to the patient’s head before the victim rises to her feet with visible difficulty.
As the elderly woman crosses the living room on her way to the bedroom while leaning heavily on her walker, Floyd confront her.
‘I said, why do you feed the dog human food? Why do you keep feeding that dog human food?’ she demands angrily.
