A Brooklyn toddler is in critical condition after authorities say his mother nearly beat him to death with a bamboo stick.

Police say 27-year-old Yayun Weng brought her 2-year-old son to a hospital Thursday, claiming he fell out of bed.

When doctors saw the child's injuries they immediately called police. Investigators say the boy had bruises over 90 percent of his body.

Weng was charged with assault, endangering the welfare of a child, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. She was arraigned Saturday.

Information on an attorney for Weng was not immediately available.
