Father admits to shaking young girl

By Michael Purdy

Tulsa, Okla. — It's a disturbing story out of Tulsa, involving a 20-year-old father.

Deputies say they arrived at the St. Francis Children's Hospital this week, in reference to a child abuse call. Once there, they were told about a young girl's injuries. The age of the child hasn't been released.

Doctors informed deputies the girl had a brain bleed, bruises on her body, and she had to be put on a ventilator. Plus, she was suffering from retinal hemorrhaging.

The father, Jacob Tyre, was then interviewed. Tyre allegedly confessed to officers he had shook his daughter because she would not stop crying.

Tyre was taken to the Tulsa County Jail. He faces a count of child abuse.

An update on the child's condition hasn't been released.
