PINELLAS PARK, Florida (41NBC/WMGT) – A Florida mother is accused of throwing her 10-month-old child against a fence and then hurling a rake head at the baby.
Pinellas Park police were called at about 6 p.m. Saturday night after two juveniles reported witnessing Natalee Sesler, 25, of New Port Richey, abusing the child.
Investigators said Sesler had become frustrated because the 10-month-old was unable to stand and threw the child against a wooden fence in a nearby yard. Then she threw a metal rake head at the child, but it did not strike the baby. Sesler then picked up the crying baby by the leg and threw him on a lawn chair.
Neither Sesler nor the baby was wearing pants when the incident occurred, and the baby was missing its diaper, police said.
