Man batters month old baby nearly to death, baby suffered 26 broken ribs, punctured lungs
The gorgeous fella you see above is 36 year old Nathan Rawling. In December 2011, Nathan brought a 31 day old baby boy to a hospital in Kent, England, after the baby’s heart stopped. Doctors soon uncovered a horrific catalogue of injuries which included: 26 broken ribs, two broken collarbones, a broken arm, punctures to BOTH lungs and a ‘shocking’ injury to the baby’s genitalia! Sick bastard!
Rawling, who is believed to be, surprise surprise, the boyfriend of the baby’s mother, initially tried to explain away the injuries. According to Rawling, the baby stopped breathing and turned blue at home (this part is true, but the baby only turned blue and stopped breathing because Rawling had beaten the shit out of him!) so he leapt into action and tried to perform CPR but must have ‘pressed down too hard’, breaking poor baby’s ribs. The broken arm? Must of happened when he grabbed him. The injuries to his genitalia? Oh, sorry, he must have ‘accidentally’ knelt on baby’s privates. What a load of bull.
Thankfully, police and doctors shared my sentiments and presented medical evidence which showed that the injuries could NOT of occurred accidentally and that baby was in fact victim to a “frenzied, brutal and repeated assault”. At that point, Rawling changed his story, claiming that the injuries were inflicted by the baby’s mother! What a coward. Firstly, he brutally assaults a tiny baby barely a month old and THEN tries to blame others! Allegedly, police had to step in after a 100 strong mob gathered outside Rawling’s home and tried to break in after hearing about the horrific crime he had committed. I personally would have let them have him but, unfortunately, it doesn’t quite work like that.
Rawling was arrested and found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent. Today he was sentenced to 10 measly years behind bars. What a joke.
Many feared that the baby would not survive, and he was on the brink of death, not breathing and with no pulse when he arrived at hospital, but miraculously, he survived and is now said to be doing well. I hope he is blessed with a long and happy life. He suffered horrific injuries which could have and almost did kill him, inflicted by a slab of human excrement who should spend the rest of his life behind bars, but will be out in less than a dozen. What a complete and utter joke. I’m just thankful the baby will have no memories of the horrors he was subjected to so early in life. Bless you, baby boy.
