Woman Might Have Saved Little Girl’s Life By Sharing Photos Of Her Dad

Viral photos showed a Texas man dragging a girl by her hair, prompting an investigation by child welfare officials and police.

The girl was seen with her hair wrapped around the shopping cart handle as the man pushed it in a Walmart in Cleveland, Texas. The scene was captured by a shopper, Erika Burch, it was reported.

“Please stop! I promise I won’t do it again! Please stop!” Burch said of what the 5-year-old girl was pleading, KHOU reported.

She told him to let her go, and he told Burch to mind her own business.


“He is a sick, sick , sick animal is what he is,” Burch told KHOU.

Burch then contacted a police officer, who called his sergeant.

“He has the right to discipline his children,” Burch said the sergeant told her, KHOU reported. “Now this baby had to go home with this monster thinking that nobody cared about her and it’s okay for this animal to pull her by the hair of her head,” Burch said.

An investigation was launched, CBS reported.
