(WFLA) A Florida mother is accused of throwing her 10-month-old child against a fence and then hurling the head of a rake at the child. Pinellas Park police were called at about 6 p.m. Saturday night after two other children reported witnessing 25-year old Natalee Sesler, of New Port Richey, abusing the child.

Investigators say Sesler had become frustrated because the 10-month-old was unable to stand and threw the child against a wooden fence in a nearby yard. Then she threw a metal rake head at the child, but it did not strike the baby. Sesler then picked up the crying baby by the leg and threw him on a lawn chair.

Making the situation even stranger, police say neither Sesler nor the baby were wearing pants when the incident occurred. The baby was not even wearing a diaper.
