Police: Miami father burned child with iron

A father in Miami is charged with child abuse because of the way, investigators say, he tortured his son.

The pictures of the injuries are quite graphic. Authorities say, Cedric Brown beat his 12-year-old son for acting up at school.

They say Brown used his hands and fist to pummel the boy. He, then, plugged in an iron and used that iron to burn the child.

Police say Brown and the child's mother tried to hide the boy's injuries by keeping him out of school.
