Father charged with forcing a bottle in baby’s mouth
23-year-old Daniel Santos Borges, of Beavertown, Pennsylvania forced a bottle into the mouth of his 9-week-old son. This caused a laceration under the newborn’s tongue that would have bled profusely.
Borges is being charged with endangering the welfare of a child and simple assault.
The child was taken to the hospital for trouble breathing. An examination also revealed a bruise to the child’s left eye and a scratch on his right leg. A doctor said that a laceration of that type would have been caused by forcefully pushing something into the baby’s mouth.
Borges told a caseworker that “he wouldn’t stop crying and would not take the bottle. I forcefully pushed it in his mouth. Yeah, I get rough with him sometimes,” according to the complaint.
Thanks go to Brooke for this one too!
