Mom, 27, charged with child endangerment after her 9-month old baby is filmed crawling along a busy ROAD in viral video
An upstate New York mom has been charged after her nine-month-old baby boy was found by strangers crawling alone in the middle of a busy road.
Video posted to Facebook, and viewed more than 2.2 million times, showed the infant squirming on his stomach in the middle of Bleecker Street alone on Friday night. Several strangers are seen attending to the baby and attempting to call 911.
Towards the end of the video, a woman is heard running up to the crowd that had assembled and yelling: ‘That’s my baby! Oh my god!’
Once the video was brought to the attention of authorities, an investigation was launched. After several hours, police were able to locate 27-year-old Ledrika Ford on the 500 block of Milgate Street, in Utica.
