Georgia mother allegedly drops, kills her 3-month-old baby during a fight
A Georgia mother is accused of dropping and killing her baby during a fight at a beauty supplies store on Friday.
Karen Lashun Harrison, 26, was charged with felony murder, cruelty to children and simple battery after the incident in Moultrie, Ga., according to WLAB-TV.
The fight took place in the parking lot outside of the store. Police say Harrison dropped her three-month-old son on the pavement during the altercation.
The child landed on its head, and was taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center for treatment the following day. It later died from injuries related to the fall.
Harrison originally told police that her baby received the injury when it fell from a family friend's arms.
That friend, Carneata Clark, corroborated the story. She's since been charged with providing false statements and obstructing an officer.
The other woman involved in the fight has not been charged, however Moultrie Police Lt. Freddie Williams said the investigation is still underway and that more charges are possible.
Video obtained by WLAB-TV shows how the incident unfolded. However, due to the graphic nature of the footage, the station chose not to air the clip in its entirety.
