Woman Drops Young Child On Highway While Fleeing Police

A woman has been arrested after dropping a young child on a highway as she fled police officers in the United States, according to local media reports. 

Body cam video shows a woman running in and out of traffic while clutching an infant in Central Florida.

As she was approached by officers, she is seen dropping it head first on the side of the highway.

Officials reportedly said the infant suffered a fractured skull.

"Do not run into traffic. You are about to be tasered," an officer is heard saying.

"Get on the ground, now."

The woman, named in the U.S. press as 23-year-old Kayla Morgan, was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse and resisting arrest.
