A 3-month-old in Falls County is fighting for her life after her father shook her, according to the Falls County Sheriff's Office.

"This is a dangerous, permanent injury that can have anywhere from temporary to permanent damage to the brain."
says Dr. Tim Martindale with the Martindale Family Medicine Clinic.

Falls County deputies say 33-year-old Ronnie Dewayne Pearson was arrested and charged with injury to a child with serious bodily injuries, a first degree felony.

His bond is set at $75,000.
