Fort Worth, TX – According to authorities, teenage incubator Shantaniqua Scott wanted to “make her life easier,” so she attempted to suffocate her special needs infant. Not once, but four separate times. The child, who somehow managed to survive under Scott’s care for an entire four months, was transferred from a Waco hospital to Cook Children’s Medical Center earlier this month for treatment of recurring, life-threatening gastroesophageal reflux and apnea. The baby boy had been staying in a video-monitored room when a code alarm sounded Friday morning, indicating that the boy’s vital signs were failing. Medical personnel were able to successfully revive the unresponsive child and he was then transferred to pediatric intensive care. When hospital staffers had a look at the surveillance video, they saw 17-year-old Scott pressing a blanket on the infant’s face before placing her hand directly over his mouth and nose. During questioning, Scott told investigators she didn’t want the kid anymore – wanted to go back to living a carefree life without the burden of a sick child. Investigators have reason to believe that this is the fourth time Scott tried to smother the kid to death, but details weren’t provided. She has been charged with injury to a child/serious bodily injury, a first-degree felony, and is being held on $25,000 bond. The infant, still hospitalized, is expected to recover. Once he is released, he will be placed in foster care because DCF is reportedly having a helluva time finding any “appropriate relatives.”Tags: Child Abuse, Fort Worth, injury to a child, Smothering, Suffocation, Texas
