PALM COAST, Fla
A Palm Coast man was arrested and charged Sunday with aggravated child abuse after a 4-year-old boy suffered serious head injuries as a result of being thrown against the ground.
Flagler County Sheriff's deputies were called to a home on Ethel Lane in reference to a report that a child was injured. Witnesses told deputies that Christopher Williams picked up the child by his arms, raised him above his head and slammed the child onto a carpeted, concrete floor.
The child was airlifted to Shands Medical Center in Gainesville under trauma alert. His condition is critical but stable.
Williams is being held on $10,000 bail at the Flagler County Jail.
