An all to common non-gun fatality.
COON RAPIDS, Minn. – A 5-month-old baby girl from Coon Rapids has died after spending nearly a week on life support. The girl was taken to the hospital on May 11 with bleeding on her brain consistent with being shaken. She died around 11:30 p.m. Sunday night.
The girl’s father, 25-year-old Joshua Vanhoutan, was charged last week with one count of first-degree assault and two counts of malicious punishment of a child.
Not a lot to say about this. I will point out that those who use the metric “Gun Death” seem to think things will be better if more laws are passed.
I’ll note it is currently illegal to violently shake a baby. Did that law save any lives here?
