Police: SC father was drunk when he fell on baby

Apr 6, 2010 6:29:00 AM - thestate.com
Authorities say a 2-month-old girl is fighting for her life after her drunk father fell on top of her.

Greenville County deputies told multiple media outlets that 37-year-old Jason William Martin was alone watching the children on Saturday night when the baby was hurt.

Investigators say Martin first told the infant's mother a bruise on the baby's head happened when an older child fell on her. The mother brought the child to the hospital the next day when her limbs began to twitch.

Doctors said the child suffered bleeding on her brain and was critical condition.

Martin has been charged with unlawful neglect of a child. He was released from jail on bail and it wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
