A mother was arrested in Virginia after a photo of her 14-month-old son hanging from plant hook was posted on social media.
WTVR reports the picture shows the boy suspended in the air hanging by his twisted t-shirt. He is hanging from a door frame crying and obviously uncomfortable.
A criminal investigation was launched and a warrant was issued for the woman’s arrest.
Police say the boy was hanging from a planter hook. The boy was “absolutely fine,” according to police.
The toddler’s mother, 18-year-old Alexis Breeden, turned herself in Thursday afternoon.
Police say the boy’s father and mother had an argument and “in retaliation,” the father posted the photo on Facebook to get the mother in trouble.
The photo launched outcry on Facebook which lead people to contact authorities.
Breeden is now facing a felony child abuse charge.
