A mother threw her 18-day-old infant into a snow bank in south Minneapolis Saturday morning, witnesses said.
Witnesses retrieved the baby from the snow moments after 21-year-old Ashley Renee Couch threw the baby into the snow during a domestic dispute with Deontae Thurmond, the baby's father, the Pioneer Press reported.
Couch was arrested on suspicion of child abuse and Thurmond on suspicion of domestic assault.
The baby was taken to the hospital with a life-threatening core temperature of 95 degrees, which is known to be low enough to be life threatening, the Star Tribune said.
The baby girl handled treatment well but remained in the emergency room Saturday night.
