  • Baby tossed from car

    The Associated Press

    Updated: 2:51 p.m. ET Sept. 14, 2004GREEN BAY, Wis. - A man dropped his fiancee’s 8-month-old daughter out of a car as he fled police after being accused of domestic violence, authorities said. The girl, strapped in a car seat, was unhurt but the man was fatally injured in a crash.

    Dana Bettin, 23, died Sunday, three days after the dramatic highway chase that ended when he crashed his fiancee’s car into an unoccupied squad car.

    At one point, he slowed down, opened the car door and dropped the baby in the car seat onto the highway, sending it tumbling toward the middle of the roadway.

    “As the baby was flying toward me I noticed that she was crying very hard and looked scared,” Wisconsin State Patrol Sgt. David Catalano said Tuesday on NBC’s “Today” show, which aired video of the incident.

    “Fortunately she was seat-belted into the child seat so that as it slid forward on the highway and then rolled over she escaped without any injuries,” he said.

    Sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Pamenter told The Post-Crescent in Appleton that the man at first tried to put the baby out of the car on the shoulder, but the door car was in his way. He eventually pulled back into traffic and pushed the baby out as he was accelerating.

    “His car was jerking back and forth,” Pamenter said. “I didn’t know what he was doing. He seemed to care for the baby.”

    “I was pretty certain he wasn't going to stop until he crashed,” Pamenter said.

    OMG!!! Thank God the baby was safe. Thankfully, the baby was young enough & will never remember this.

              I too was pissed when I first saw this...but I then saw the chase on the news. The guy driving the car knew what was going to happen and he slowed to a crawl (1mph or so) and opened his door and set the child (still in the car seat) on the ground. Sure he was a dumbass but it wasn't as bad as what the media made it sound like.

              The driver later died from inuries from his wreck. At least he got the baby out of the car before he ended it all.

              Still a douche bag though....
