A newborn baby was hit in the face with a snowball after teenagers gagging around threw it into an open car window.
According to reports, the incident did not leave any massive injuries on the newborn baby.
The incident happened in Meir, Staffordshire, on Monday this week.
The angered mother of the baby confronted the group, which was formed by both boys and girls that are about 15 and 16 years of age.
One of the youth reportedly apologized for their acts.
In a post that was made on Facebook by the sister of the baby, she said, “A big thank you to the silly teenagers who have just decided to throw a snowball into my mum’s car and all over my one-week-old sister.”
She added, “Already cars sliding all over the place and they think it’s fun putting more people at risk. Pure stupidity. I’m not sure what school they go to. My mum said they were around 15 to 16 and both boys and girls.”
She continued, “My mum’s a bit shook up and fuming. She only wanted to make sure the baby wasn’t too warm in the car. She shouted at the group and one girl apologized when she realized there was a baby. That’s not the point – baby or no baby it’s still dangerous. They had already been stuck on the A50 for an hour when this happened.”
After the incident, the Staffordshire Police issued a warning that they will be taking action if someone gets hurt by a thrown snowball.
A spokesperson of the Staffordshire police said, “No-one wants to prevent youngsters from having a good time enjoying the snowy weather– but there is a point where fun stops and danger begins.”
The spokesperson added, “Pelting people with snowballs can be counted as anti-social behavior and can result in prosecution. Some snowballs have the potential to cause injury to people or damage to property, especially if they contain stones.”
The spokesperson continued, “When snowballs are thrown at cars, there is the potential for drivers to suddenly lose control of their vehicles. We urge parents to advise their children about the dangers of throwing snowballs at vehicles and the potential for a snowball to cause injury if it hits someone directly. People should enjoy the snow, but do it responsibly.”
