Heartbreaking Photos: Mom Threatens To Kill Toddler Because She Feared Husband Was Cheating
This distressing footage and photos show the moment a jealous wife filmed herself hanging her baby son as she suspected her husband of cheating on her.
Nareumon Jampasert, 28, recorded one-year-old Theeradej Saisupan with black rope tied around his neck as he's suspended in the air.
The frightened child can he heard squealing in pain before he is hurled onto a bed where he continues to cry.
Scowling Nareumon then filmed herself threatening to kill the baby before she sent the sick footage to Jakrit Saisupan.
She said on camera: "You see, Joe. You care about people a lot. This is your son. This is a rope. Look at it. It's not dead. I do not kill it yet. Look at it. I will take it go to die somewhere. You have to wait to see me today.
"If you don't come back to take him you have to wait to see what happens today. You don't answer my phone, yeah."
Jakrit, 32, passed the video to his sister and mother who shared it online in a desperate bid to raise the alarm.
Authorities raced to the apartment in Bangkok, Thailand, on Friday afternoon at 4.30pm and arrested Nareumon and checked the young boy.
The mother appeared the next day at a press conference in which she broke down in tears and apologised.
She told officers that she was stressed because sales from her online shop had been low and she feared that her husband was seeing another woman because he was spending a lot of time at work.
She said: "I'm hurting a lot. The first thing I was thinking was that I wanted to kill myself. I did this to the baby because I wasn't thinking, and I was emotional.
"In my heart I'm thinking my husband does not care about his son, does not care about his wife.
"I took the baby and I wanted to do something to make my husband hurt. I took the video and sent to him.
"He sent to his sister and then they sent me the message to calm down and not do this. After I spoke with his family it was OK and me and the baby were sleeping."
Lt Col Samat Gringaew said the baby did not have any injuries but would be checked again at hospital.
He added: "We will not proceed with charges against the mother because if she goes to prison, who will take care of the child?"
