A 3-year-old child named Spencer is currently in the hospital after getting shards of glass in his eye, after his babysitter, Taylor Price, got into a violent fight with her boyfriend.
Price was reported smashing windows as her boyfriend tried to end their relationship.
She put her hand through the back window, where the child that was in her care was sitting.
Authorities say Price and her boyfriend were supposed to be watching Spencer, but at one point during the day, they got into a fight that ended in the man trying to break up with Price.
It is believed that Price became so angry when her boyfriend tried to dump her that she punched through a window in a car.
According to police, Spencer was sitting in his car seat in the vehicle, directly next to the window that Price punched.
When glass from the window went flying everywhere, Spencer was reportedly hit in the face around the eyes.
The moment authorities arrived at the scene, they found Price with blood all over her hands while Spencer had a red eye and cuts on his face.
Samantha Upson, Spencer’s mother, told WPXI that her son has already been forced to undergo at least two surgeries in the past few days to remove shards of glass from his eyes.
“My brother was trying to break up with her and she didn’t want that to happen, she lashed out,” Upson said of the attack on her son.
In addition to punching and shattering the window, Price also punched her boyfriend numerous times and bit him in the chest.
Investigators say Price also punched the window knowing that the little boy was sitting in the back seat.
“She needs help, she needs to do some time and then get help,” Upson said.
Currently, the family is praying that the child doesn’t lose any of his vision in the ugly attack.
Meanwhile, Price is currently being held in jail over child endangerment charges, as well as charges of assault for attacking her boyfriend.
The story went viral on the internet, with many other parents critiquing the mother’s decision to continue to allow Price to babysit the 3-year-old.
