    Way to go, Tyler! I shudder to think how this story could have turned out if this guy hadn't happened to go out for a smoke.

    It's good to hear stories where people do right once in a while.

    ETA: It's especially nice to hear stories of teenagers doing such wonderful things. They often get such a bad rap, I'm glad there's stories like this around.

    "Flett said her daughter Daisy Houle, 24, was devastated by the beating of her child.

    “That lady kidnapped the baby and took her in the corner to beat her up,” Flett alleged."

    Um.....ok. So some radom lady kidnaps a baby in the middle of the night then beats the snot out of her. Kinda makes ya wonder if Vanessa was reported missing. OR...if the mother did this herself. Just thinking out loud.

    I know. Very strange. I think it's safe to say there's weirdness going on in this case.

    My theory is that it was a drug/drinking acquaintance (or even relative) of the family who was possibly sleeping over and bugged out. They don't say it was a stranger, just that it was not the mother. In those circumstances, anyone taking a minor out of the home could be described "kidnapping."

    But the way the teen says he assumed it was a drunk out there at 4.30am on a Tuesday night/morning, I'd say it's not the greatest of neighbourhoods.

    I hope CPS looks into this family very closely. I pray that the little angel makes a full recovery, bless her heart.

    No, I think it was a neighbour's kid. He is the father of a one year old, but not this one.

    "Hailed as a saviour, a Winnipeg man who interrupted a woman as she savagely attacked a months-old child yesterday says the baby was so badly injured hecouldn't tell if it had a face"

    I think I sense some attempted murder charges a-comin' for this tardo kidnapping drunk lady, whoever she is.

    you know, this kind of thing makes me sick. WHY would anyone think it's ok to have people strung out around children?! and if she were all crying and worried, um, wouldn't you call the damn police?!?! I just DO not understand :(

    Sounds like a grudge between the mom and this attacker, IMO - possibly the baby's father's new girlfriend or something...?

    I hope this inspires a few people to straighten out a few things in their lives. It kind of sounds like a depressing situation.

    ETA: Looking at her profile makes me ill. This was a criminal in waiting. Seeing what she says about herself says it all - she'll likely love prison, sadly. I do think this was a territorial thing.

    My thoughts are with the baby and her family.

    Oh man, it just gets more depressing as it goes on... it seems Eaglestick has a little son of her own. Best wishes to that poor little boy.

    I'm guessing the type of person who beats up a baby has a lot of "haters." She should learn to live with it. What a witch.
