A Colorado babysitter is facing serious charges after allegedly throwing a 7-month-old baby over a video game, CBS8 reports.

Caleb Collins, 24, is facing charges of attempted first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury.

This week, unsealed documents revealed this week that the child will "likely never see, hear or have purposeful movement" after being thrown in the incident, which nearly killed him.

Documents claim that Collins injured the infant after he "crawled toward his PlayStation and pulled one of the cables."


Collins called 911 after the June incident, claiming that the baby "fell from his arms and was not conscious or responsive." An investigation later determined that the boy's injuries were "the result of forceful handling, not an accidental drop," a press release from the police notes.

Collins, who is a father himself, "said that he felt awful for being responsible for hurting [the boy]," the affidavit read, according to the news station.


Collins has pleaded not guilty. If convicted, he could face up to 90 years in prison.
