A 25-year-old man was arrested Saturday after his girlfriend claims she saw him remove their infant daughter from the freezer, where he’d placed her in an apparent attempt to stop the child’s crying.
Doctors believe the child is fine and will suffer no long-term effects, but that wasn’t clear at the time. The child was rushed to the hospital where doctors discovered she had a body temperature of just 84 degrees.
Tyler Deutsch was arrested and charged with suspicion of attempted murder, according to Washington Fox affiliate KCPQ.
Authorities said they believe the child was in the freezer for up to one hour.
