Feb 13th, 2020
Every parent would do anything just to defend their kids, especially when they end up hurting other kids. Sometimes, no matter how wrong the situation is, they still feel protective of their children who are the ones who are in the wrong. But what happens if the child ends up hurting and killing another child?
An 11-year-old girl dropped a baby on his head at a daycare in Wisconsin. Instead of helping the poor boy or asking for help from the adults, she stomped him to death.
Now, the mother has come out and explained that the case was not what it seemed. That the girl’s actions were not intentional. The girls’ name continues to be hidden due to her age. But she was charged as an adult with aa crime of first-degree murder with intent.
She is considered as the youngest person to be tried with a serious crime.
This tragic incident happened in October 30, 2008 when the girl was still 10 years old. According to reports, she fatally wounded a 6-month-old baby after she dropped him while at a daycare in Chippewa Falls.
When the baby fell and hit his head, reports reveal that he started crying. In her panic, the girl started stomping him to quiet him down. The poor child did not die immediately, but he suffered from his injuries and passed away days later.
The girls’ mother explained that there is no way that her 10-year-old would intentionally hurt the infant. She believes that it was just an accident. She said, “And you know what. I believe my daughter. ” The little girl is present at the Winnebago Mental Health Institute for adults. It is a 4-hour long drive from her home.
The mom added, “She’s the youngest person there. She’s 11 years old with women 40 years old and over. She wants to go home. ” She is also doing everything she can to bring her daughter home.
This is what the little boys’ father has to say regarding the incident, “I waited 37 years for my own little baby boy. I was extremely lucky because he didn’t cry, no fussing, he was happy smiles all the time.”
He also shared how his son fought for his life when he was sent to the hospital after being wounded. At first, the boy seemed okay. But it didn’t take long for the doctors to call the father and tell him that his son is in critical condition. He explained, “They had mentioned what are we going to do if his heart stops, and it caught me completely off guard.
I had sent a couple messages out to family to let them know that Jaxon’s not going to make it. I remember, I broke down out there pretty bad. Yeah, it really hit hard. ”
After the baby passed away in the hospital, the girl was charged with his death at the Chippewa County adult court. The father of the victim was also there in court during that time. He sad that he was shaking and overwhelmed when he saw the girl. He said that he did not see her as an innocent 10-year-old girl but instead, saw her as the person who killed his son.
