Newborn miraculously survives beating, Mother unaware

New information on a mother arrested for child neglect. Doctors say the newborn son was beaten so badly, it's a miracle he survived.

Police arrested the mom, but she wanted to tell us her side of the story.

Shayna Molomot is back at her Palm Beach Gardens home. The beating incident happened in October. Investigators say the 5-week-old baby boy suffered from internal bleeding and broken bones. But Molomot tells Fox29 she wasn't aware of any abuse.

It wasn't until the baby had a seizure in October that she knew something was wrong.

She told us her husband hit her a few times and she even had him arrested for domestic violence.

But, she says she never knew if he hit her son. "The only thing I can be at fault for that I admitted to 'cuz I was wrong 'cuz I'm his mom... How can I protect him from something I didn't know was happening?... I didn't do anything to hurt my child... I would never hurt my kids."

Right now, both her son and her 1-year-old daughter remain in child services custody.

As for their father, he remains in jail, charged with domestic assault and child neglect.
