Dad Throws Infant From Second-Floor Apartment, Then Jumps To Escape Fire In Dramatic Video Hu Chen/Unsplash

A woman reportedly dropped her infant on its head while she was intoxicated in New Kensington, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Officers reportedly responded to 11th Street near the Kensington Arms Apartments in New Kensington on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at around 5 p.m. after they received reports of a woman carrying a baby while under the influence. When the officers arrived at the scene, they found 27-year-old Kendrianna Neville, sitting on the ground holding her child and crying hysterically, saying, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”

Neville told the officers that she had dropped the infant on its head. Neville was reportedly intoxicated while talking to officers, had glassy eyes, and was slurring her speech, Yahoo News reported.

According to the officers, the boy was about 6 months old and had dirt on the back of his head and pieces of leaves and dirt near his mouth.

Following the incident, the baby was taken by ambulance to UPMC Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh. The baby was reportedly found to have suffered a fractured skull. However, the child underwent treatment, was released from the hospital in stable condition on Thursday, Oct. 13, and was in the custody of the Westmoreland County Children’s Bureau, TribLIVE reported.

Neville was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of children, reckless endangerment, aggravated assault, and public drunkenness. Her bond was set at $20,000 and she was sent to the Westmoreland County jail.

Neville’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 27. before New Kensington District Judge Frank J. Pallone Jr.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a man allegedly dropped his own 2-month-old infant and brutally broke the child's bones as punishment for "excessive crying," as previously reported.

Marterrius C. Moore, 22, of Millbrook, was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse after he allegedly assaulted his 2-month-old infant Jamarion Moore of frustration for "excessive crying."

On Sunday, Oct. 24, Children’s Hospital staff alerted Millbrook police officials that they were treating a 2-month-old child suffering from severe head trauma indicative of an abusive household.

Moore reportedly told the police officers that the baby suffered the head trauma because he accidentally dropped the infant on Tuesday, Oct. 19. However, the extent of the child's injuries was found to be more grievous when compared to the reason for injury that Moore mentioned.

After the Millbrook Police Department questioned Moore, he admitted to angrily injuring the child on several occasions due to the child’s excessive crying. Moore was arrested and charged with Aggravated Child Abuse and transported to the Elmore County Jail.
