Father Accused Of Fracturing Son's Skull

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) ― Child endangerment charges have been filed against the father of a 5-year-old child who suffered skull fractures after the man threw the baby into his crib.

According to a report, Christopher Davis is in serious condition at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines with a fractured skull, broken neck and multiple bruises. Authorities say the injuries aren't life threatening.

According to police, 18-year-old Paul Russell Davis and his wife, 16-year-old Kayla Phipps-Davis, argued at their apartment, after which Phipps-Davis left. The baby was crying as he sat in a swing, allegedly prompting Davis to grab the baby and throw him in the crib. Davis allegedly took the child from the crib and shook him until he went limp.

After Phipps-Davis' return, the parents took the baby to the hospital for treatment. Davis was questioned by police and charged Thursday.
