LEESBURG, Fla. -- (WKMG) -- A Facebook video showing a Leesburg mother pushing her son’s head into a toilet got the attention of many people -- so many, she said Sunday, that police had to sit outside her house Saturday night because of the threats she was receiving. Someone even came to Kaitlyn Wolf's home angry about the video, she told WKMG.
But the video isn’t what it looks like, Wolf said. In the clip, the hair of Wolf’s 3-year-old appears to be swirling in the toilet and the boy is crying.
“(It) sounds like he’s like, hysterically crying, but he’s not,” Wolf said. “He’s crying and he’s laughing at the same time. After the video was done ... (he) goes, ‘Let’s do it again.’”
Wolf said she’s worried about the video and how it’s circulated. She has received death threats from people saying she should be shot, killed, run over or buried alive.
The Department of Children and Families, along with the Leesburg Police Department, are investigating.
