Daniel Sanzone, of Wolverhampton in the UK, shook Joshua Millinson so hard he caused brain damage. Doctors said the damage was so severe that it was actually some of the worst they had ever seen.

A frustrated operator can be heard asking Howell if the 13-day-old infant is breathing.

Sanzone has already received multiple death threats, reports the BBC.
Ms Howell was cleared of any wrongdoing.
