Father admits hitting his crying baby, causing multiple skull fractures

SINGAPORE – Just six months old and lying defenceless in his mother’s lap, a crying baby bore the brunt of his father’s frustration when the man struck the boy’s head so hard, it caused multiple skull fractures.

This single act of violence in 2016 caused the child to suffer permanent disabilities for which he will require help with his daily functions for the rest of his life.

The boy is now two years and eight months’ old, but his developmental age is around four months. He cannot sit, move, turn or flip over on his own.
