The toddler reportedly suffered a cut to his left eye and an abrasion to his head. 

A witness told ABC7 that he was horrified. 

"He [the toddler] was all busted up by the time they brought him up," John Smith told the station. "Baby was screaming, busted his eye, his nose was bleeding, blood was coming out of his mouth, his head was bleeding."

It was not immediately clear why the woman, identified as Jessica Mixon, allegedly flung the child. 

Police said Mixon admitted that she threw her son.
