A mother high on bath salts was seen running naked towards her frightened 3-year-old son, beating and choking him.
Pamela McCarthy of Munnsville, New York was allegedly high on bath salts when she was spotted running naked through the streets to her startled child, who was clinging to his father Jason Williams in fear.
The shocking report from Daily Mail says witnesses called the police on June 12 to report that the mother was punching and choking her son, attacking neighbors and strangling one of her dogs.
Police arrived on the scene to see the deranged 35-year-old mother growling and trying to bite people. She was subdued with a Taser, suffered cardiac arrest, and later died in the hospital.
Officers said Pamela was “violently combative” and apparently under the influence of the drug.
Police tried to arrest her but she resisted. They used pepper spray to no effect so they had to use a Taser to handcuff her. After she was taken into custody, she had a heart attack. She was taken to hospital but later died.
Her boyfriend and father of her child, Jason, said that Pamela had a history of drug abuse.
It’s another bizarre and horrific case of bath salt users, the most notable case of the Miami cannibal who ate another man’s face.
The boy was taken by ambulance to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse and was treated for minor injuries.
