Caregiver Kicks 95-Year-Old Woman in Surveillance Video

A caregiver was caught on surveillance video kicking a 95-year-old woman in the leg so hard that she started bleeding profusely.

Martha Diazsanchez, 64, was arrested Monday afternoon at the victim’s Little Havana home on SW 29th Avenue and faces charges of elderly abuse, battery on a person 65 years or older and tampering with physical evidence, according to the Miami Police Department.

“We were able to put this puzzle together, and again, this could have been much worse,” Commander Freddie Cruz said. “This elderly female could have been kicked in the head, her life could have been taken away at any given moment. She is 95 years old.”

The surveillance video, taken from the victim’s bedroom, shows the Diazsanchez entering the room after the victim fell off her bed. She kicks the victim in the leg, hard, causing her to bleed and left a laceration in her leg. Diazsanchez pulls up the victim to her bed and mopped up the blood after she patched up the injury, police said.
