Mother Admits To Gluing Toddler's Hands To Wall & Beating Into Coma

A young mother beat her defenseless toddler into a coma, says a new report. She plead guilty in court on July 12, admitting to the horrific incident. Find out more of the tragic details.

According to police reports, Elizabeth Escalona, 23, dragged her daughter by the feet, beat her with various objects, and then glued her hands to the wall. When the child’s grandmother arrived at the house, the child was unconscious.

The toddler was rushed to the hospital, where she was briefly put on life support. Police records show that the child, Joselyn, 2, had glue and paint stuck to her palms.

Police say Elizabeth was frustrated with trying to potty train her daughter, so she allegedly hit the girl in the stomach with a milk jug, kicked her, and beat her with a belt, before gluing her hands to the wall.

Other people reported seeing Elizabeth inflict pain on her daughter in the past, according to police reports.

She plead guilty in court to the incident that occurred in September 2011, and could face up to life in prison if convicted.

Joselyn recovered, and her and her three siblings were taken into custody.

This is what I truly hate, young mothers beating their kids. With most of the stories here that I have read of child abuse, they have been young mothers who get impatient with their kids and beat them or do something worse. I think that If they know that they don’t have the money or patience, they should drop their child off at a foster home. Let a child live a life then almost killing it. This woman disgusts me and deserves to rot in a prison cell her whole life for what she has done to this young child. Let this child live with parents who would love her and wouldn’t do this to her.

Look, honest truth shes 23… Probably had pregnancies and kids she didn’t want but for some dumb reason kept it. Theres moms all over like this, ex teen mom amber…she didn’t beat leah just took it out on the father… so moms who didn’t want kids and arent ready. Therefore they get easily frustrated and lose it.yes amber portwood was caught on camera sayin she never wanted kids and how she wish leah wasnt b born.

That’s right, an eye for an eye that’s what I say! Stop over crowding prisons and just do to the inmates what they did to their victims. See how they like it!
