“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.'”
