A mother has been charged with child cruelty after she was allegedly seen ‘waterboarding’ her baby daughter in a disturbing Facebook video.

Caitlyn Alyse Hardy, 33, from South Carolina, was arrested on Wednesday after she posted footage on the social media site showing her pouring water over the sleeping infant, police said.

Screenshots circulating on social media show the original post said, ‘Payback for waking me up all kinda times of da night.’

The video clip shows the nine-month-old girl waking up coughing after water was poured over her face from a plastic bottle.

Authorities were alerted by concerned social media users after the video was shared on a Facebook.

Authorities issued a warrant for her arrest Wednesday, accusing the mom of ‘ill-treatment’ that caused ‘unnecessary pain and suffering’ for the baby girl.

  • Why would you do that? Disturbing indeed.


  • Omg that’s so wrong


  • What the…!! Who does that sort of thing?


  • Oh dear. Please do not let this person near children again. She is obviously incredibly immature and not a normal functioning adult.


  • Cannot believe any mother would do this to her child.


  • This is a disturbing story,she should be charged.


  • I know pnd is serious and yes might have contributed to this case, but no one should do this to babies. They are innocent and need us. I hope the baby is ok and the mother gets the treatment she needs and deserves


  • This is kind of sick behaviour.
    Maybe this mum isn’t so educated and didn’t know babies wake up at night ?
    Maybe this mum has a postnatal depression and is totally irritable of her child waking up at night, having feelings of resentment towards her baby ?
    What do we know ?


  • That’s disgusting ????
    Poor little bubba


  • Sickening. That poor child. She deserves so much more


  • OMG!! What the hell is wrong with people???


  • This is so infuriating – what a nut!!!


  • Poor little innocent bubba. Som people Don’t deserve to be parents. Maybe she should have thought about things before she became a parent


  • One way of getting attention and finding herself on the wrong side of the law.
    She should have thought about being woken up at night before having a baby.


  • Oh my god!!! Why would she do that and then why would she post it online??
