Florida’s Chrystal Hassell really, really hated her unborn child.
But rather than just get an abortion so the thing would be out of her life forever, the 37-year-old just did all that she could to make sure this kid had the most miserable birth imaginable.
She first concluded that the chances of the baby being born with as many diseases as possible would greatly increase if she smoked crack while pregnant and had it prematurely.
Hassell killed two birds with one stone by smoking for 24 hours straight, causing her to go into labor just seven months into the pregnancy.
She checked into a hotel in Marion County with her boyfriend and 11-month-old last Friday.
The boyfriend didn’t want to see her give birth to some hideous freak with three arms so he took the kid and went out as Hassell got into the bathtub to deliver the baby.
But she didn’t have anything sharp on her to cut the umbilical cord.
Hassell used her teeth to save time before discovering that the baby was not breathing.
She called the boyfriend to ask where he was, and when he said he wasn’t close, she told him to speed up.
He did what she said and ended up getting pulled over. That’s probably not a good thing when you’re wanted for attempted murder in Colorado.
Hassell waited for him for nearly an hour, trying to resuscitate the baby so it wouldn’t escape its life of misery.
She eventually called 911.
The baby was airlifted to UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainvesville, where he is reported to be in critical condition.
Hassell was charged with child neglect and now joins her boyfriend at Marion County Jail. The 11-month-old boy has been placed into the care of foster parents.
