Baby boy killed during parent fight
A 5-month-old baby was killed during an altercation between his parents on Crete, authorities said yesterday.
Although the exact circumstances of the incident – which occurred late Wednesday in the town of Siteia – were not clear, what was certain to a local coroner was that the baby boy died from head injuries. More tests were expected yesterday.
According to reports, the mother, 30, claimed her husband, 52, threw a phone at her in a fit of rage which hit the child she was holding in her arms. Authorities are also examining the possibility the baby was dropped on the ground.
