The mother of a 9-month-old is facing charges after she allegedly poured water on the baby, who was sleeping, and recorded the incident reportedly saying it was an act of retaliation.

The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office recently reported that they came across a video posted on Facebook and interpreted it as having content that caused the belief that “improper treatment of an infant” may be taking place.

The video allegedly showed a hand, assumed to be a woman’s, holding a bottle of water over a sleeping baby and pouring some of the contents on the child’s head. The infant woke up and began coughing after a second stream of water allegedly made contact with her face.
