Deadbeat Dad Arrested After Tossing Baby in Pool to Teach Her a Lesson

A dad in Phoenix was arrested last week on child abuse charges after throwing his baby girl into a pool in order to teach her a lesson.

Corey McCarthy didn’t throw her in once, but twice.

In the video, you can see him carelessly tossing the toddler in the water, as his girlfriend rushed to her rescue.

Apparently, McCarthy was enraged that the little girl accidentally killed their 5-week-old puppy when she dropped it into the pool and needed to make her aware that playing near or in the water is dangerous.

Luckily, she survived the traumatic ordeal and was not injured, but her mother is in disbelief.

“I am very angry and I’m very hurt and I just hope that my kids are going to be OK from this,” the toddler’s mother, Samantha, told KTVK. “People make mistakes, but this is past a poor decision and a mistake. This is a child. What people don’t know is also in the beginning of the video, he hoses her down with a water hose to kind of torture her that way.”

McCarthy is still locked up and is currently being held in the infirmary after he was jumped by other inmates.

And now, the story of a good dad.
