Horrific footage shows a Florida mom throwing and kicking her defenseless three-year-old child down a hallway.
Yulia Storozhuk was branded a ‘monster’ by police after she was caught on camera physically abusing her son.
The heartbreaking clip shows the 29-year-old repeatedly attacking the helpless child, allegedly leaving him with bruising and redness to his body.
The shocking incident was reported to police by a concerned neighbor, who caught the attack on their ring doorbell camera.
‘How can a mother do this? I mean, she is a monster,’ a spokesman for Miami Dade police said.

In the video, Storozhuk can be seen aggressively picking up her son and slamming him to the floor of their Sunny Isles apartment building.
The little boy is tossed in air and lands on the hard floor with a sickening thud.
She then kicks him at least three times along the hallway, before grabbing him by the collar and dragging and kicking him some more.
Footage from 40 minutes later shows her shoving the boy in the chest, causing him to fly backwards and smack onto the floor.
The Ukrainian superyacht stewardess told detectives the violent outburst was because her son was not listening to her, NBC Miami reports.
She now faces two counts of child abuse charges and was bonded out of jail on Wednesday night.
Storozhuk appeared in court on Wednesday and spoke through an interpreter where she told the judge: ‘I am very sorry, I am a single mom and it was only one incident where I let my emotions get the best of me.’
Later when leaving jail she claimed to love her son and said she is anxious to see him.

She said: ‘I’m so sorry, I won’t do this anymore,’ before refusing to talk any further without her attorney present.
The judge ordered her to stay away from her son for 30 days and arranged for her to be arraigned within 30 days.
The Department of Children and Families is also launching a probe into the mother’s behavior, the police report states with the child current in their care.
‘The mother is going to get the consequences that come with her actions’, a police spokesman added.
In a gushing birthday post for her son two years before the incident, Storozhuk, from Odessa, calls the ‘angel’ youngster her ‘hope, protector and pride’.
