Teenage Mom Caught On Camera Trying To KILL Her Baby!

Thu, May 19, 2011 7:00pm EST by 5 Comments

Shantaniqua Scott confessed to cops she wanted her ‘carefree’ life back. How horrifying!

Thankfully doctors disturbed the grisly scene in time to save four-month-old Raymond. Shantaniqua is now on trial.  Should she be locked up for life?

Medics suspected Shantaniqua Scott, 18, was abusing her baby after the pair made a number of visits to the hospital following Raymond’s birth — so they installed a hidden camera and caught her in the act!

The horrifying video, recorded in July 2010, has been played to jurors in Fort Worth, Texas. It shows her placing a blanket over Raymond’s mouth and clamping down as he struggles and fights for air.

As soon after he stops breathing, alarms ring out and a team of doctors and nurses rush to resuscitate him.

In an emotional testimony, heart and lung specialist Dr. Sami Heed told the court the baby would have died if medics had taken any longer to get to him.

He said, “I still get emotional. I get night sweats when I think about it. I take care of the sickest of the sick. His life was being put in danger by someone who was supposed to take care of him.”

Police officers who questioned Shantaniqua after her arrest have also given evidence, revealing she confessed to smothering her tot because she found it hard being a teenage mom.

Sgt. Pedro Criado told the court, “She just basically stated that she just wanted to go back to that carefree attitude she had before she had the child.”

Raymond, thankfully, recovered and is being cared for by social workers — but doctors admit it’s too soon to know if he has suffered any lasting damage from his mom’s attack.

Shantaniqua, meanwhile, is facing a life sentence if convicted on two counts of causing serious bodily injury to a child.

How would you punish this teenage mom?

They weren’t watching the video as it took place!
There was no telling how long the kid was under survelience until the situation took place.
It could have been several hours!
You expect docs to just sit around and watch the video?
There mess up is, if they susppected abuse, they shouldnt have allowed the mother to be in the room

The article says the doctors came rushing in after the baby stopped breathing; the doctors should have stormed in the minute they saw what was going on! They shouldn’t have waited until the baby was almost dead!

On another note, I am glad this mother is facing charges. If you don’t want to be a mother, there are other ways.
