One-Year Old Kissed And Flung Off The Bridge By Teen Mother

imageA one-year-old boy whose mum allegedly threw him off a bridge into a river six days ago has been pronounced dead.

Zymeir Perry died in hospital yesterday morning after his mum Johnesha Monae Perry, 19, allegedly flung him off a bridge in Pennsylvania, US.

Ms Perry gave Zymeir a kiss moments before she pushed him over the railings and then jumped from the 52-foot bridge into the Lehigh River herself.

A police officer found the little boy 700 yards away, floating downstream, and performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Ms Perry suffered serious injuries in the fall but managed to get to the shore.

An autopsy is expected to take place on Monday morning to determine his cause of death.

Ms Perry has been charged with attempted homicide, endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated assault.
