A disturbing video that shows a mother throwing a newborn baby has taken the internet by storm. The grandmother of that infant called FOX13.
“Knowing my daughter, that was not my normal daughter,” Lily Moore said.
Moore told FOX13 she is the grandmother of two-week-old Christian Moore. She wanted to tell their side of the story.
“She told me that he (the boy’s father) kicked the door in and it frightened her, and she had been off her meds for about nine months because she didn’t want to take anything to harm the baby,” Moore said.
Lily Moore told FOX13 her daughter has a mental illness. The night of the incident in the video, Memphis Police took her for a mental evaluation.
“After they took her to Lakeside, they assessed her and they had to medicate her,” Moore said. “They heavily medicated her down because they knew she was toxic; she was very, very toxic.”
With the video making its way around the internet and many questioning the mother, we asked Lily Moore how her daughter is doing now.
