WINNIPEG — An 18-year-old man is being credited with saving the life of a baby whose head was being smashed into a sidewalk early this morning.

Tyler Bilsborrow said between 4 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. Tuesday he stepped outside his Gilbert Park home to smoke a cigarette and heard whimpering noises.

He noticed a woman sitting on a sidewalk near Chudley Street and Tyndall Avenue hitting something against the sidewalk. He realized with horror it was a child.

"I thought the woman was drunk, beating up a cat," recalled Bilsborrow, standing less than 100 metres from where the incident took place. "(The child) was screaming, crying, trying to breathe."

As he walked toward them, the crying woman dropped the child and ran off. The baby lay on its stomach and feebly tried to crawl, he said.

Bilsborrow, father of a two-year-old daughter, used his sweatshirt to wrap around the beaten child. He used a cell phone to alert police and rubbed the child’s stomach to calm it down, he said.

Police said Tuesday morning the child was in guarded condition at hospital.

Bilsborrow said he believed the child was a girl about six or seven months old. He said the woman had gripped the child’s body by its neck, with its face turned away from her, as she rapped its head against the sidewalk.

"Nobody in their straight mind could do that to a kid," he said. "(The police) said ‘You pretty much saved its life.’"

He described extensive injuries to the child, who was clothed in a muscle shirt covered in blood and a diaper.

Tyler's mother, mother, Pearl Bilsborrow said she wants to bring the child a blanket. She said she considers her son a hero.

Officers from the Child Abuse Unit are leading the investigation.

I'm glad he saved the baby.

If the mother didn't want the child,she should have put it up for adoption instead.

It's not so uncommon to kill babys. Before the christian church entered Europe it was common sense to kill unwanted babys simply by burying them. Must be the same in every culture.

It was never really said that the thing (I consider the woman less than human so I shall call it thing) was the mother. I really hope the baby's future is more promising. Good for the guy to find the kid and lucky for the baby to be alive.
