          Why Father Says He Believes Son’s Seizure, ‘Serious Injuries’ Caused By Child’s Mother, Not Playground Fall

          April 19, 2016

          Andrew says he believes his ex, Kayla, is responsible for causing serious injury to their 2-year-old son, Noah, who suffered a seizure.

          After Noah was taken to the hospital, Andrew says he read the medical report and he says he’s sure Kayla contributed to his son’s injuries.

          “I was in complete shock … I read a 130-page report. The more I read, the more angry I got,” Andrew says. “There is no doubt in my mind, at all, that Kayla did something to my son that resulted in very, very serious injury.”

          Doctors discovered Noah had suffered a subdural hematoma, brain swelling and retinal hemorrhages – symptoms medically associated with shaken baby syndrome.

          Kayla has admitted to shaking the baby, but insists she never shook the child in a violent manner, and instead, she believes Noah’s seizure and injuries were caused by a fall on the playground days before he suffered the seizure.

          Watch the video above as Andrew and his sister, Allison, discuss why they believe Kayla is responsible for Noah’s injuries.
