(KPRC)  A 2-year-old Houston, Texas boy and his 1-year-old brother have been placed with relatives while Child Protective Services investigates allegations of child abuse.

The boy's mother was recorded by surveillance cameras beating the 2-year-old and slamming him to the ground. Witnesses say she dragged him across the concrete and up a flight of stairs.  She was reportedly upset because the boy wandered away from her.

The video has been seen by CPS case workers and they are now investigating the case.
