The district court house of Beersheba indicted a woman after she threw a two-month-old boy from a moving vehicle causing him serious injury. She is being charged with aggravated assault under duress.
According to the indictment, submitted by southern district prosecutor Adir Cohen, the incident began on August 3rd when the woman entered her brother’s car from Beersheba.
While she was riding in the car on her way home, she unfastened the child’s safety lock and picked him up by her hand. She then threw the boy from the window screaming, “I am a bad mother!” The drivers nearby witnessed the event and claimed that they were traveling at speeds of 80 kilometers an hour.
Her brother immediately stopped the vehicle, exited the road and signed to the other drivers to stop their cars. The child had broken bones and was seen crying at the scene.
The brother rushed the child to the Soroka Medical Center and the baby was checked and found to have suffered abrasions on his right side. A CT scan also revealed that he had a head injury and was bleeding from the brain. After receiving treatment, the baby was released the following Sunday. Translated by Jacob Goff Klein.
