LEESBURG, GA (WALB) - Lee County Sheriff's investigators seized the computer of the 16-year old who posted the flying baby video on You Tube. They want to know what else is on the computer hard drive.
Now, the teacher who reported him to authorities speaks out.
Dr. Deb Baltenberger learned of the video from another student. The science teacher looked on YouTube for herself and was shocked at the display from her former student.
She says as a teacher and a mother, she had to alert authorities.
"Legally as a teacher we are first responders, and so anytime we see a child that we think could be endangered, or we hear them say something, yeah, we're legally responsible to do it and morally yeah, as a parent, I just couldn't do anything but call," Baltenberger said.
While deputies were at Baltenberger's home, she showed them two other videos she believes the teen made.
In one, he sat the baby in front of a speaker and played the guitar. "Yeah, it looks like the same baby right next to an amplifier, and they just plunk the amplifier, and the baby cries. Yeah, that one bothered me too, but that one, I don't know, I just saw it and said 'why would you do that?'"
The teenager remains in the Youth Detention Center awaiting a detention hearing.
He's charged with two counts of cruelty to a child.
