TORONTO — A 11-year-old Toronto boy is fighting for his life Friday morning after a severe beating. His mother was arrested at the scene.
Police were called to an apartment complex in the west end of the city around 1:10 a.m. They found the boy lying face down on a 12th-floor balcony, according to a local television report.
One resident claim the boy’s mother was reciting the Lord’s Prayer as she was led away. Another resident claims the woman was cackling and blowing kisses at bystanders from the back of the police cruiser.
Neighbour Samuel Jeon claims he heard one of the other kids in the apartment saying their mom was “possessed by the devil.”
Police would not confirm that a refrigerator may have been dropped on the boy at one point. A 911 dispatcher reportedly took the call from a boy whose voice was down to a whisper. Police could not say if the caller was also the victim.
The 11-year-old’s sister may also have been arrested at the scene, according to reports.
The boy was taken to hospital where he is listed in critical condition.
Two other children in the home — aged 6 and 8 — were reportedly put in the care of Children’s Aid. No charges have been laid at this time

Maybe we need to seriously consider parenting licensing...because this woman surely should not have had any children
