CCTV Video Of Woman Throwing Baby To Ground (VIDEO)

CCTV footage of a mother apparently throwing her baby onto a concrete floor has been released to media by an Australian judge.

The unnamed 21-year-old mother appears to throw the 10-month-old baby to the floor, allegedly in anger after an argument with her partner.

A man then tussles with the mother, who reports say was drunk, and attempts to remove the baby from her hands.

The incident occurred in the Palmerston bus exchange in the Northern Territory, Australia last May.

The mother is pleading not guilty to recklessly endangering serious harm to the child, claiming she dropped the child by accident.

The baby was taken to hospital, but suffered no major injuries.
