Toddler Thrown Off Overpass, Dies In Hawaii

 CBS News Interactive: Children In Danger

HONOLULU (AP) ― A man wearing hospital scrubs threw a toddler 30 feet from a pedestrian overpass onto a major highway Thursday, and the boy was later pronounced dead, authorities said.

A 23-year-old man was arrested after witnesses saw him throwing something, followed him and called police, officials said.

One or two vehicles may have struck the 2 1/2-year-old boy, but it was unclear exactly what killed him, The Honolulu Advertiser reported.

A white sheet covered the body on the westbound lanes of the H-1 freeway, a major route through downtown that police temporarily closed. The scene was just blocks from the Capitol and the governor's mansion.

The man was taken to the Honolulu police station and then to a hospital, said police spokeswoman Michelle Yu. She didn't know whether the man had a history of mental illness or a criminal record.

I've heard of several brutal killings of babies and young children in Australia over the past 3 years -- this is why I dont watch the news, it just reminds me that we live in a cruel world.


It puts me off bringing my own kids into the world.

Who the heck are these people?! A similiar thing happened here about a week ago. A man threw his four children off a bridge, including a 4-month old baby. They all drowned. The reason? He had a fight with his wife. Yeah, that really gives you an excuse to kill your children.

I read about that the other week in the news. So sad for those little children.
