Rainham baby fall mother guilty of neglect

A 31-year-old Kent mother has been found guilty of child neglect after her baby fell from a first-floor window on to a man walking below.

The woman from Rainham, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had denied the charge.

Her one-year-old child suffered major head injuries last August, but recovered after surgery. The baby hit the man before landing on the pavement.

The woman is due to be sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court in July.

The baby suffered a clot on the brain, but has since recovered.
