An 18-year-old man is under arrest, accused of seriously injuring his girlfriend's 1-year-old son.
The child was brought to Greenville Memorial Hospital on Tuesday night. Deputies said that the 1-year-old is a victim of severe child abuse.
Around 8 p.m. Tuesday, EMS was called to Heritage Mobile Home Park off of Anderson Road after a report of a child not breathing.
Deputies said that they found the baby’s mother, Christina Angelina Miraglia, and her boyfriend, Timothy Leroy Massey, kneeling near the child inside the mobile home.
Lt. Tim Ridgeway with the Greenville County Sheriff's office said emergency medical workers performed CPR on the 1-year-old and took him to Greenville Memorial. Ridgeway said the child is in very serious condition and breathing with the help of life support.
Emergency medical workers said there were numerous bruises, lacerations and contusions on the child’s head, chest and stomach
Ridgeway added, "It's always hard to see a child injured like this. It's traumatic for everybody to see something like this because they're so helpless."
Deputies said Massey, Miraglia and her 4-year-old child were at the home when the 911 call came in.
Investigators said that they believe Massey was responsible for the baby’s injuries.
Massey is charged with assault and battery with intent to kill. He is being held without bond in the Greenville County Detention Center.
