In the department of who ever thought this was a good idea, a Florida woman is in some serious trouble for taking her child out of her car during a car wash and hosing her down with the hot water. The entire scene was caught on video (what isn’t these days?) and because of the disturbing tape, the police arrested the woman Friday afternoon.

Niurka Ramirez was charged with child abuse in Orlando for attempting to discipline her daughter in the midst of a temper tantrum. Ramirez claimed she wasn’t being too cruel – she didn’t have the water on full pressure. After posting $1,000 bail, she was released from jail and is awaiting trial.

The child, who has not been named, is doing fine and after doctors checked her out, reported no signs of physical injuries. The mental ones are just beginning.

The video is below, warning: it is disturbing.
