SHREVEPORT, LA — A 10-month-old boy suffered severe head trauma after his mother allegedly threw him through an open car window while arguing with the child’s father over money.
Police say that on Saturday, 29-year old Carmen Paul was arguing with Felthon Hall while holding their son. Fall was sitting inside a car and claims Paul got so angry that she threw the boy through the open car window in a fit of rage.
Hall was able to catch his son, but not before the child hit his head on the car’s metal door frame. It must have been one hell of a throw because after Hall rushed the boy to the hospital, doctors would find he was suffering from a skull fracture and bleeding on the brain.
The baby is currently in the hospital in stable condition while his mother is in jail. She reportedly walked away from the scene after giving her son the heave-ho, but was picked up later and charged with second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.
She’s lucky she didn’t kill the boy, especially since his skull hasn’t even fully developed yet. When my kid was 10-months-old I could make her go to sleep immediately by thumping the soft spot at the front of her head. It was like flicking a damned light switch off. We were both able to get a good night’s rest, and she eventually stopped walking in circles for no reason. It was a win-win.
