Mom Who Injects 8-Year-Old With Botox Being Investigated

Authorities in California are investigating a mother – who’s creating a firestorm of controversy – for admitting that she injects her 8-year-old daughter with the anti-wrinkle drug Botox.

After Kerry Campbell appeared with her daughter Thursday on ABC's "Good Morning America,” San Francisco’s Child Protective Services was flooded with hundreds of calls from people concerned about the girl’s well-being.

Trent Rhorer with the city's Human Services Agency tells KGO-TV that officials need to sit down and talk with Campbell and her daughter, Britney.

Campbell enrolls Britney in beauty pageants and says she got the idea to give her daughter Botox from other pageant mothers.

Botox injections can be painful and are not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.
