COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – A woman talked about what she saw after a man was arrested for throwing a toddler into oncoming traffic.
Tracy Willner witnessed the incident Friday night near the intersection of North Academy Boulevard and Airport Road in Colorado Springs.
“We see a guy standing by grease Monkey and it looks like he’s throwing something in the road,” Willner said. “The car in front of us swerved, so we stopped and I realized it was a baby – well, a 2-year-old – and he stood up, and I said, ‘Oh my God, oh my God, he threw a kid, he threw a kid in the road.'”
Police say the toddler is expected to be okay.
The child’s 30-year-old cousin, Brian Hickcox, has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
