First Picture Of Baby Boy Who Had Both Legs Amputated After Been Assaulted By His Own Parents
This is the first picture of a baby boy who was assaulted by his parents so badly he had to have both legs amputated.
Tony Smith Junior was almost killed at the hands of Jody Simpson and Anthony Smith who carried out a string of ‘violent assaults’ on their 41-day-old son.
The young baby was swung around by his ankles which resulted in him having to have both legs amputated, leaving him with life-changing injuries.
He also suffered life-threatening septicemia and a whole hose of other infections after his bones were broken in eight places in 2014.
These photos also reveal the grim conditions inside the squalid one bed flat in Maidstone, Kent, where young Tony was so horrifically abused.
The court heard how his parents delayed taking their son to the doctor for nine hours because they claimed they had to wait for a plumber to fix a broken boiler.
When he was eventually taken to the GP, he was gravely ill, with his eyes closed and his lower limbs hard and swollen. After being admitted to intensive care, Tony pulled through – but now faces a lifetime of disability.
