Daniels told police he put the child in a carrier and later noticed that he wasn’t moving so performed CPR.
The man, who called 911, denied dropping, spanking or striking the child and insisted the baby had shown no signs of distress before becoming unresponsive.
The baby’s mother lives in south Florida and had left the baby with his father for a two-week visit.
According to Wesh.com, the sister admitted Daniels has a strong temper but said she had never witnessed him abusing the child or any of her children who also share the home.
The child lived with his mother fulltime in South Florida. One has to wonder, if it is true that the father caused his own child’s death, what is happening with so many parents abusing their children nowadays?
