A woman is facing charges after police say she poured water twice on a 9-month-old sleeping baby and posting the video on Facebook.

Police say Caitlin Alyse Hardy, 33, caused the baby unnecessary pain and suffering for the incident. She was charged with cruelty to children.

In the video, police say the baby could be seen waking up coughing after Hardy poured water on the infant.

The Sheriff’s Office notified the Department of Social Services so an investigation can be conducted for the safety of the child and other children living inside the home.
