What led to Heidy Rios a Terrytown, Louisiana mother throwing her three week old newborn baby at her father’s feet (and breaking the boy’s skull).
Heidy Rios a 24 year old Terrytown, Louisiana mother was arrested Friday after throwing her infant baby son at her father’s feet, fracturing the child’s skull.
Nola.com/The Times-Picayune reports the couple had been arguing, when Rios threw the 3-week-old baby at the father’s feet, telling the man, ‘take your f***ing son’.
Rios’s boyfriend, the infant’s father, took the child to a New Orleans hospital on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, with doctors determining the newborn had fractured his right temporal bone. Authorities were called by the hospital to investigate the injury.
Authorities say the injuries aren’t life-threatening.
Rios initially told investigators she didn’t know how her son was hurt, only to later say she may have dropped the child during the dispute.
A Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office arrest report says Rios was arrested Friday and charged with cruelty to a juvenile. It’s unclear if the mother has a lawyer.
