Jason Martin Falls on Infant Daughter’s Head

Jason Martin

A 2-month-old Greenville girl suffered severe head injuries after her drunken father took a spill onto her head, Greenville County deputies say.

Investigators said that Jason W. Martin told the baby’s mother, who wasn’t home when the baby was injured Saturday evening, that their other child had fallen on the infant, causing a bruise on her head.

The baby’s mother became concerned on Sunday when her daughter became agitated and her limbs began to twitch.

Medical personnel determined that the infant suffered bleeding on the brain, brain swelling and retinal bleeding.

Martin was charged with unlawful neglect of a child after medical personnel at Greenville Memorial Hospital contacted the Sheriff’s Office.  He admitted to investigators that he was intoxicated and fell on the baby’s head.

Martin was released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.

The girl remains in critical condition.
