PHOENIX, AZ – A father was arrested after being caught on camera throwing his 1-year-old baby girl into the pool to “teach her a lesson.”
Corey McCarthy was seen picking her up and throwing her into the pool repeatedly while his girlfriend went out and retrieved her. McCarthy’s defense was that the baby threw a puppy into the water and he was trying to teach her not to do it again.
The outraged mother called the police when she found out. The authorities promptly arrested McCarthy.
“I am very angry and I’m very hurt and I just hope that my kids are going to be OK from this,” the toddler’s mother, Samantha, told KTVK. “People make mistakes, but this is past a poor decision and a mistake. This is a child.”
“What people don’t know is also in the beginning of the video, he hoses her down with a water hose to kind of torture her that way.”
