A Minnesota mom was arrested after she was caught trying to stop her five-month-old son from breathing. Read on for this shocking report!
Katie Lewis is charged with child endangerment, domestic assault by strangulation and third-degree assault after she was caught suffocating her son on camera.
Katie had brought her child to the Children’s Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota telling the staff her son had stopped breathing, according to the Daily Mail. Her son was then placed under observation in a room equipped with video and audio monitoring systems. In a baffling turn of events, 24-year-old mother was then caught on camera pinching her son’s nose and covering his mouth in order to suffocate him. Hospital staffers immediately stepped in.
The boy kicked for 45 seconds and went limp, according to the arrest report.
Katie admitted that she “snapped” because of her issues with bringing up a child, and also she had stopped her son from breathing on several occasions, said the report.
The infant survived the attack but sustained substantial bodily harm, said a spokesperson from the Children’s Hospital resource center.
