Video Shocker: Nanny recorded abusing infant is arrested after reported fight with cops

It’s surveillance video that led to the arrest of a nanny, and has also caused outrage and disbelief.  The video that claims to depict nanny Mamura Nasirova physically abusing a five month-old baby in her care is so disturbing, a viewer’s first reaction may be to look away.

However, the feelings of outrage the nanny’s recorded actions evoke might be more likely to keep a viewer locked in.

In the video, the nanny tries to give the baby girl a bottle.  When the baby refuses to drink, the woman who’s supposed to be caring for the child instead slaps the infant multiple times in the face, causing the baby’s head to jerk with each hit.

The nanny then shakes the baby in her bounce chair on the floor.  Next, the nanny hits the baby in the legs when the girl continues to refuse to feed, followed by punches to the five month-old’s body when the girl still won’t eat.  Finally, she shakes the baby and pulls her up roughly.

The baby’s mother posted the video on http://russianparentsworld.com/article/nanny-blacklist , where she identified the nanny as Nasirova, and also gave a description.  “My 17 month-old son was very scared of her for no reason and I was home full time and didn’t see anything wrong until one day when I took my doughter (sic) to dance class…

“While there, [I] decided to watch the cameras from the ipad… When we showed her [the] video, she did not show any emotion at all and simply said ‘But I love her.’

“She is a monster, liar, animal.  I don’t think there is any words to describe her!!!  What kind a person would be hitting like that a 5 month old child!!!”

The family called the police, who arrested Mamura Nasirova, 52, at the family’s home on Woodlawn Avenue on Sunday evening.  Nasirova reportedly fought the cops when they put her in handcuffs.


An abusive nanny was busted in the act after the family of the children she watched over, set up a hidden camera.

Wednesday afternoon, as the posted surveillance video started gaining wide attention, nobody answered at the family’s home, but a neighbor who knows both Nasirova and the baby’s family said there was a good reason why the mother had mistrusted her children’s caregiver.

“They got frightened one time she was hitting them,” Margaret Meekins  told PIX11 News.  “They got very frightened.  They looked at me.  …She hit them in the behind.  She didn’t hit them in the face, because if she did, she would’ve heard from me.”

In the surveillance video, the baby’s 17 month-old brother is on the sofa nearby watching the hitting, and does not appear to find it unfamiliar.  He was not harmed.

At Nasirova’s listed address in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, nobody was available, and it was not clear that she actually lives there.

For now, she’s staying in the Staten Island lockup, being held on $1000 cash bail on charges of endangering the welfare of a child and child endangerment.

    It's pathetic that we can't even post a video regarding child abuse without trying to sell me something first. How is that not exploitation? Clearly you put videos like this up because of the sympathetic and shocking nature not because it's "news" worthy but because you want to sell us something.

      Your comment makes no sense. The reason they have to try and sell something is so they can post and host content like this. The Internet isn't free.

      Not everyone has the luxery of caring for their children and paying their bills at the same time. babys cost alot of money, even more when you have TWO, and most of the time a parent needs to work tot ake care of those children.
      what a hurtfull comment, completely disgusting and insensitive.

        i read that, also. She works full time from home, I believe the article said. It doesn't matter, she's not the one caring for her children, someone else is.

        how do you afford daycare then? and i realize that single moms many times do not have the luxary of staying at home, but alot of times a family could just cut back on expenses and budget wiser. we are a family of seven, living on my husband's income of 44,000 a year. it is tough, but we scrape by so that I can stay home and raise our children. it can be done if you really want it.

      Gretchen459 said:

      I was an in home daycare provider for 20 years. The parents would bring the kids at 6:30 am and not pick them up until 6:30 pm. I was responsible for all the love and attention these children received. At home they would feed the kids and put them to bed so they could enjoy some adult time or go to the gym. Thank God I loved them, because the parents were too busy meeting their own needs to be concerned about loving their own children.

      There could be any number of reasons why the parents hired a nanny. Maybe the mother has physical limitations, or works from the home and needs to be able to focus on her job…. There is no reason to judge the mother. The woman who abused the child is in the wrong. All the hatred should be focused on her. This is coming from a mother who stayed at home with her own children in order to take care of them, instead of putting them in daycare.

    Call me old-fashioned, but I grew up in a family where we still take care of our young, and elderly. They are not disposable to other people. If you have a child, you should care for it. If your mother is sick, you should take care of her. Period. I could maybe understand having one child that you didn't plan for, and being forced to get childcare, but to immediately have a second, and still continue to put them in someone else's care…that boggles my mind. If you don't have the money or heart to raise them, don't have them. Yes, this woman is in the wrong, obviously; however, it still doesn't make any sense to me why you would have a 2 year old and a 5 month old in someone elses care. Choose your career or your children. What is more important? I'm sure it isn't cheap to have a full time nanny…so would you really be missing out on that much if you actually raised them yourself?

      Kelly said:
      February 7, 2013 at 12:35 AM

      I agree with your values. People are not disposable and should be taken care of, yet I think your ultimatum to choose a career or children is a little harsh. Just my thought. I think women should be able to have both if they choose.

      I also find it amusing that most of these comments have turned into a commentary on the wife's role within this family instead of the fact that this nanny was abusing an infant. Not trying to stir up conflict, just commenting.

        You are right. I think in a utopia where husbands were great and had jobs with salaries and could work while mom stayed home, we would not see this type of abuse going on. However, this is reality and all moms can't do that with a working and contributing, loving husband in the home. I do feel that if the mom could be at home all day anyway she could care for her kids herself. Maybe she works at home and needed the extra help. Either way, that nanny would have a morbidly obese lump on her A$$ because I would STILL be stuck to her kicking what is left of her butt.

        lynn said:

        I just wanted to add that I didn't have the guts to watch the video because I knew I would get too emotional. She needs to be beaten with a wet leather belt for about 5 minutes.

      Are you done? Because this is not about whether or not to place one's children in the care of a nanny, and–has nothing to do with the care of elderly parents. This is about a woman who has abused a child placed in her care, and–may very well have done the same thing to a child of her own. There are good nannies, and–there are bad ones. And, for that matter…the very same can be said about parents (whether they hire nannies or not). Is that a thougth lost on you?

      Dee said:

      In a world full of single parents. For whatever reason the children may end up with one parent or another. It is not always convenient to choose between either or. Some people have to worry about being sure their children are feed. So they don't have the luxury of staying home

      Yes, you're old fashioned. And horribly ignorant. Guess what?? Times have changed. For most families, it is no longer possible to make ends meet on one income. Sure — I would have loved to stay home with my kids — which would have meant a crappy apartment in an unsafe neighborhood, a crappy unsafe vehicle, and no extra ANYTHING. So I work — and we live in a nice home in a good neighborhood, have a late model (safe) vehicle, and my children are in football & basketball & cross country, and get to participate in all the things they wouldn't, if we didn't have the money to do so. So yeah — it can be a sacrifice to have both parents working. But for us, it's worth it — and I know my kids feel the same.

    I best this mother hired her without references or from a nanny service. If this nanny is not a citizen or is, she should be deported. We should not allow criminals from other countries to enter or stay in our country if they have previously or do commit a crime here.

    Jemma said:

    Caresabout kids

    What does a nanny cost? So if you claim you *have* to work, are you working to keep your family from starving or to pay the nanny's wage? Can you trust a stranger no matter what the references say? Is the almightly dollar worth more than your kid's wellbeing?

    What I find strange is that mom had to put in a nanny cam in the first place. If she suspected anything, immediate action should have been taken and the nanny let go. Why even risk one more incident just to get proof? Why does she need proof? All she needs to say is this isn't working out for me and goodbye. Trying to get proof could have cost the life of her child. Geesh! You don't have to shake a baby hard to cause brain damage. I'm shocked the baby didn't have marks on her prior to this as I'm sure this wasn't the first time as the mother suspected something and I wonder what that something was? I wonder if the 2 year old showed in any way that she was afraid of the nanny? Even though a 2 year old isn't all that verbal, surely there would be some indication (nonverbal clues) that all wasn't well.

    This nanny should be in jail in RUSSIA! I was a childcare provider for 20 years, none of the children I cared for were ever afraid of me. Nannies like this give the caring nannies a bad name. Parents–please don't fully hand the care of your child to a stranger. You need to be the authority in your child's life.

    $1,000 bail for child abuse and resisting arrest? It should be 100,000 minimum (10k bond) to keep her in jail and not allow her to run back to her country.

    If you can afford a NANNY and a NANNY CAM… How about using that money and not working or working from your home. Care for your own children.. I stayed home for 10 years to care for my children, and never regretted one minute, I gave up for myself so My children could eat and had a parent at home with them to raise them into decent adults!!!

      jack said:
      February 7, 2013 at 8:46 AM

      Unfortunately, sad to say there are lot of people out there that should not care for children. That is sick…to hit a helpless baby. I feel that some families have to have a care taker they have busy working
      lives and we don't know if they have family around to help out maybe grandma does'nt want to raise a
      another family member 24/7!

      Guest2 said:
      February 7, 2013 at 9:23 AM

      I've done the same thing. I've been working from home for less money then I would make outside the home just to be able to stay home with my own kids. It has truly been a blessing and you can tell my children were calmer and happy as babies than those who go to daycare early on. Just like we support mothers who decide to breastfeed since it is really healthier for your baby, so is you being there taking care of them inside your home instead of leaving them in care of a stranger.

    A $1000 cash bond ! Are you kidding me ! Women do have to work and no one knowa moms situation so do not critcize her; this so called nanny is nothing more than a criminal & should never be in contact with a child again. She is no better than a pedophile.

    Guest said:

    “They got frightened one time she was hitting them,” Margaret Meekins told PIX11 News. ”… the neighbor saw the nanny laying a hand on the kids and she did not report it to the parents? And if she did, she was not fired on the spot? Poor kids.

    Guest said:
    February 7, 2013 at 9:17 AM

    This video just makes me want to cry and scream. I don't understand how anyone could hurt a baby!!! Why was her bail only set for $1,000 cash? People carry that in their wallets. She is a sick individual and if the mother of the children read these messages I hope she decides to stay home with her children. You have to protect your children, they are so precious. It is does take dedication to stay home with your children but they are babies for such a short time. When they are old enough to go to school then work out side the home. That five month old baby deserves so much love and has a right to feel loved and safe.
