In Port Chester, New York, a child was reported to have suffered a skull fracture. The
Lo Hud (Lower Hudson) Website provided some details as to the allegations against Jose Cruz, who is accused of slamming the child when her crying disturbed Cruz while he was watching a soccer match on television. Young children cry from time to time. Some infants even cry for extended periods of time. Rather than hit or assault a child, parents, caregivers, and / or babysitters should take a deep breath and remind themselves that babies will be babies. Police believe that the actions of Mr. Cruz resulted in the baby suffering a skull fracture to the back of her head. Cruz was the boyfriend of the woman who was responsible for babysitting the child.
