Deputies: Baby Thrown from Car, Now in ICU
Friday, June 10, 2011

Richland County, SC (WLTX) -- Richland County deputies say a 14-month-old baby has been taken to the hospital, after it was thrown from a car following a shoplifting incident at a Two Notch Road K-Mart store.

Investigators with the Richland County Sheriff's Department said the child was taken to the intensive care unit of the hospital, where it is listed in stable condition, after suffering injuries Thursday night.

Deputies say two women were caught shoplifting at the K-Mart at 7325 Two Notch Road just before midnight. When security approached the women, deputies say the women got into a scuffle, and ran to a vehicle.

Authorities say the 14-month-old was riding in the vehicle, but was not secured. Deputies say the child was thrown from the vehicle as it sped away, and the child suffered several wounds, including broken ribs, a collapsed lung, and abrasions.

One of the female suspects was arrested, and Richland County deputies are questioning the driver of the vehicle.
