An 18 year-old father was caught on surveillance video leaving his two-week old son in a mall parking lot on Monday. Daniel Mitchell pulled into a parking space in Siusun City, California at around 3 pm. He got out of the car, took his baby boy out in his car seat from the back seat and placed it on the ground. Then he just drove away. A barber was paying attention and saw this. He ran over to the child two minutes later and rescued him. The child is in critical condition, but doctors wouldn’t say what is wrong with him. The barber said he looked fine when he scooped him up. Just awful.

“I noticed he had his binky, he was wrapped up in a blanket,” Keeton said. “He had a diaper on and he appeared to be fine. His tongue was a little white, maybe like he just had a bottle recently,” he continued. It sounds like they fed him and cared for him. I wonder if he has a medical condition they could not cope with? Regardless, there is just no excuse for something like this… EVER. The father was arrested after crashing his car nearby while trying to flee the scene. So, he’s a monster, an idiot and probably on something. Wonderful. The police ascertained that he was the father after he was arrested.

 

From the Daily Mail:

A teenage father was filmed abandoning his two-week-old son in a mall parking lot on Monday.

Daniel Mitchell, 18, was captured by surveillance cameras pulling in to a parking space at Sunset Shopping Center in Siusun City, California in his grey Toyota shortly after 3pm.

He was filmed coming to a stop then getting out of the driver’s seat to retrieve his son, who was in his car seat, from the back.

Mitchell calmly placed the seat next to the car then drove away.

A barber who was working nearby spotted the car seat afterwards and rescued the baby just two minutes later.

He called police and the infant was taken to hospital where doctors said that he is currently in a critical condition on Tuesday.

However, doctors did not elaborate why his health was in such a precarious state.

Erick Keeton, the barber who rescued him, said the boy appeared to be in a good condition when he found him.

 

Ah… Mitchell is facing five counts now… felony hit-and-run (for the car crash after left the baby at the mall), child endangerment, child abandonment, committing a felony while on bail and possession of suspected cocaine. This guy’s a real winner. Bet the mom is too – her name is Kalon Mitchell. Pool little fella… he deserves better parents than this. I hope he gets them. The daddy was on bail for burglary.

The mother claims she was unaware of all of this. Right. She’s not facing any charges currently. On Tuesday, she asked her friends to ‘pray for my son’ as he recovered in hospital. The baby was born on July 10th. I’m sure this is not the end of this story. I hope there is a happy ending for this little boy.

    Recently I’ve read several articles in which young parents are neglecting their infant children. It is extremely disheartening. Babies are innocent and do not deserve to be treated this way!
