Mother sought after throwing child to fight on bus in Hartford


A woman threw her baby to a stranger before getting into a fight with another female on a bus in Hartford Wednesday.

A rider on the bus witnessed two women arguing and began recording it with a cell phone.

The fight on a CT Transit Bus took place on a route from Albany Avenue to the downtown area.

In the video, a mother can be seen yelling and screaming while holding her baby daughter on her lap.

The mother tosses the child to a man, who catches her, and then fights with the other woman.

The child does not appear to be seriously injured, however, it is unknown if the mother was hurt.
