Wayland Slater Wayland Slater Monday, June 24, 2013 1:31:48 PM Just "endangerment to a child"? For a one month old it's more serious than that. Exposure of the skull would cause cerebral spinal fluid to leak and possibly causing meningitis is highly possible. Good thinking of retrieving and protecting the scalp. Hopefully the surgery to replace it will be successful with no complications. I know it sounds bad, but thank God it was only the scalp, if you know what I mean. This couple should not be together, ever. If their altercations are that violent, especially with an infant in that close vicinity, then it is not exactly made in heaven.
