May not be safe for work…highly graphic.  I actually cried when I saw this…

A Lee County, Georgia teenager put up a shocking video on YouTube, showing him using a large, inflatable pillow to launch an eight month old baby through the air.

Now that 16-year-old boy is charged with felony cruelty to a child.

He was arrested after a Lee County school teacher saw the video and called the Sheriff’s Office.

It’s a mother’s nightmare.

A 16-year-old boy demonstrates, for the world to see, how to, as he put it, ‘make a baby fly.’

He puts the baby on an inflatable pillow, then jumps on the pillow to launch the baby through the air.

The baby landed several feet away on the floor and can be heard crying.

“It was terrible,” says Lee County Sheriff Harold Breeden. “I can’t believe a 16-year-old kid would do something like this.”

The 8-month-old child was left in the care of the family of the teen who was actually behind the camera shooting the video.

The Lee County Sheriff’s office got a call from a Lee County High School teacher who was shown the posting by another student.

Fearing for the child’s safety she called investigators, and now her former student is in the detention center.

“He’s incarcerated in RYDC,” Breeden said. “We took him down this morning and he has been arrested and charged with cruelty to children in the first degree, and in the third degree.”

The first count for violence to a child under 18 and the second count for allowing his 16-year-old friend to see the violence by encouraging him to videotape it.

The teen who videotaped it is not charged with a crime.

Pediatrician Donna King, who has 8-month-old twins, says the baby could have been seriously injured.

“Trauma to the skull, of course comes to mind at first. A trauma to the skull resulting in the fracture of the skull which can cause a contusion to the brain, bleeding inside the brain,” said the doctor.

As for the teen’s actions, the Sheriff’s office hopes others will learn from their mistake.

“It’s not going to be funny when the judge gets through with him, he’ll think twice next time you know, about how funny it was,” Breeden says.

The video has been removed from the YouTube site and the teen, who’s never been in trouble before, must now await his fate in court.

The Lee County Sheriff’s office has asked the baby’s parent to have the child seen by a doctor, they’re still waiting to hear if the baby had any injuries from the fall.

Another article I read said the baby had been left in the care of the teen’s parents while the baby’s parents were on vacation.

That is pretty lame.  He should have put up an inflatable pool to aim for.

I’m not even going to view the video.  What I’m wondering is if there will be charges against the adults who left these infants in the care of a minor in the first place, especially a male minor whose maturity level would at best be that of a 10-year old????  Seems to me they should be charged with even stiffer penalties well.

The baby wasn’t left in the care of the teen, it was left with the teen’s family.

As punishment, the teens shall be placed on the edge of blown up water bed in the middle of a busy intersection. Where a over side man shall jump off a building landing on the other edge of the water bed. Sending the teens flying into on comming traffic.

So you want to charge the adults and set a precedent that will put every teenaged babysitter (regardles of gender) out of work?

I can’t even *LOOK* at that kind of thing.  I love kids too much.  The thought of someone causing harm to an infant especially makes my heart hurt. downer

As if we needed any more proof that there is evil in the world…. blank stare
