Shocking security camera footage shows the moment an Australian mother allegedly threw her baby onto a concrete sidewalk, the Northern Territory News reported Wednesday.
In the clip, aired Tuesday, a woman is seen apparently hurling her 10-month-old baby on the ground at a bus station in Australia's Northern Territory, after her partner left on a bus without her.
The video then shows the woman tussling with another man over the child.
The mother, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the baby, pleaded not guilty to recklessly endangering serious harm to the child in a court in Darwin Friday.
It is alleged she was drunk and was arguing with her partner when she threw the baby.
In a police interview played to the court, she said she was "wild" with her partner and wanted to go home when she "dropped" her child.
She was arrested a short time later.
Her hearing will continue in June.
