COLUMBUS, Ohio —  An Ohio mother was brutally beaten in a park by two people who became irate after her child broke their toddler’s sippy cup.

On June 10, the mother and her two children were playing at a local park when one of her toddlers broke another child’s sippy cup, WCMH reports. Noticing what happened, she apologized to the other child’s mom and offered to pay $10 to replace the cup.

The other mother became angry and said $10 was not enough. To avoid confrontation, the victim apologized and moved away.

When the victim went to put her 1-year-old child in a swing, the angry mother walked up to her and punched her in the face.

That’s when a man walked up to the woman and punched her in the face, knocking her unconscious, the station reports.

 

After regaining consciousness, the injured mom gathered her children and drove to a relative’s nearby home.

The woman was taken to a local hospital where she received surgery for a broken jaw, which resulted in permanent paralysis on the right side of her face.

Police are still searching for the suspects.
