Disturbing: Mother Caught On Camera Attempting to Smother Her Baby

October 5, 2015

A shocking video recorded at the Cook Children's Medical Center in July 2010 reveals a teenage mother attempting to smother her baby to death.

The camera clearly shows 18-year-old Shantaniqua Scott (then 17), placing a blanket over her four-month-old son's mouth. Moments later she clamps her hand over his face and mouth as the newborn baby kicks and struggles for life as his air supply is cut off. By the time the teenage single mother removes her hand her son Raymond's body appears limp.

Seconds later, with alarms going off indicating the baby had stopped breathing, doctors and nurses rush in to resuscitate him. The footage was played to a shocked courtroom in Texas where Scott is on trial for attempted murder.
