The Brooklyn toddler who was severely beaten by her father on Father’s Day has died, officials said.

Sixteen-month-old Nylah Lewis died at about 10:40 a.m. Friday at Maimonides Medical Center, the hospital said in a statement.

“We at Maimonides Medical Center extend our heartfelt condolences to her family, who wish to have their privacy respected at this sad and difficult time,” the hospital said.

The baby’s dad, Shaquan Taylor, 19, fractured the skull of little Nylah as he viciously attacked her on June 18 inside the family’s home, cops said.

As Nylah’s mom tried to call 911 for help, Taylor beat her.

The fiend fled, but was nabbed by police a short time later.

Taylor was initially charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child, but those charges will likely be upgraded.

“We will seek to upgrade the charges in the grand jury,” a spokeswoman for the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office said.

    Why must people feel the need to take these innocent babies life. It’s not fair to them they didn’t ask to be brought in this world. My prayers goes out to this family and I hope justice is served.

    This is ridiculous and doesn’t make any sense. How could a father call himself a father and then takes his own child’s life? Whether it was intentional or not he deserves the death penalty or let alone lethal injection. Smh

    This is sickening, no matter what ANY toddler does wrong they don’t deserve getting beaten! There other ways to discipline a child! Now an innocent life have been taken away! Pray justice is served and people learn a lesson just by this terrifying story.

    This is so crazy no kid deserves to be hit especially a toddler what could she have done so bad there’s ways around restrictions but like I said I toddler doesn’t know any better so this was really uncalled for he should rot in jail for the rest of his life but that’s just my opinion

    How can a father murder is on child in cold blood? I cannot begin to fathom the heartache the infants mother is feeling. I wouldn’t be able to live with myself knowing I trusted my daughter in her fathers care and he harmed her. Praying for this child’s family!

    Sad how cruel the world is now. Especially towards kids. They didn’t ask to be here & if you have too much anger that you feel the need to put out on them? There’s always someone willing to love them the right way
