An infant reportedly suffered a head injury and skull fracture after its mother threw a pot lid on its head in Easton, Pennsylvania on Sunday, Oct. 9.

The child's mother, identified as 27-year-old Tiffani Hare, and her boyfriend reportedly engaged in a heated argument at their house in Easton on Sunday, Oct. 9. As the argument escalated, Hare, in a fit of rage, picked up a pot lid that was lying nearby and tried to throw it at her boyfriend. However, seeing Hare throw something at him, the boyfriend moved out of the way. The pot lid, however, struck the infant in the head, Lehigh Valley Live reported.

The infant, who is younger than 12 months, suffered grievous injuries in the attack. The child suffered a cut to the head, which required four surgical stitches to close, as well as a skull fracture and a brain injury.
