16-month-old Brooklyn girl beaten on Father's Day dies

Prayers Up 16-Month-Old Toddler Brutally Beaten by Teen Dad Passes Away      Nylah Lewis died from her injuries five days after the Father's Day assault

Sixteen-month-old Nylah's battle to survive began on Father's Day when a 911 caller reported that the girl's mother had been chased and assaulted by her daughter's dad.

According to New York Daily News, Nylah Lewis passed away at 10:40 a.m.in the Maimonides Medical Center after sustaining multiple skull fractures and brain bleeds.

On Father's Day, Lewis's father, 19-year-old Shaquan Taylor, allegedly beat the baby while she was alone in his care.

Police sources said after a few hours he contacted the child's 17-year-old mother, who lives nearby, and told her there was a serious problem and to come pick the child. Exactly why I hate that lil b***h. He has been indicted for first-degree assault but prosecutors will seek to upgrade those charges in light of the child's death, according to a spokesperson for the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office.

Nylah Lewis (left with her mom Tammy Lewis) lost her five-day fight for her life on Friday after she was found unconscious and unresponsive at her dad's Coney Island apartment.

Officers were able to catch and arrest Taylor shortly after. And [Sunday] he threatened her and said he was going to punch her in the face when she got there. Taylor claimed she fell off the bed while he was in the shower. When the mother arrived, she found Nylah face up on the couch and struggling to breathe.

Taylor often ranted about the girl's mother.

"She didn't look herself, she's good here, but from their point of view at the hospital, she doesn't look like this baby right here", Munford said.

In a jailhouse interview with The Daily News, Mr. Taylor denied hurting his daughter but admitted hitting Ms. Lewis, who was his former girlfriend. "I didn't do nothing at all", Taylor said.

"You're one of the best things that ever happened to me Nylah", Lewis wrote, "I'll go above and beyond for you". "'Just f***ed (that) hotty a**, that's it".
