Another story making headlines out of Florida featured two women astonishingly drunkenly tossing a baby around like some kind of toy. Brianna Lafoe, 19, and Sierra Newell, 20, were reveling at a local Daytona Beach bar when Lafoe allegedly stood up and began to shake the baby aggressively and then began to swing him from side to side and up and down. She held him by the ankles and shook his head just above the concrete sidewalk. Lafoe then struck a passerby on the arm as she mistreated the baby. The incident was captured by a neighboring store’s security camera. Lafoe and Newell were stopped by bystanders who stepped in and took the baby from Lafoe. The women both under 21 were intoxicated and have been charged with child abuse. The baby was taken to a nearby hospital for examination where his condition continues to be evaluated; it is not yet known who the baby belonged too.
