I’ve seen a few kids hit their kids.

But this is one of the few times that I can remember it happening.

It’s been in the news recently.

The dad of the girl who was struck by a baseball and later died has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder.

He has been identified as Kevin Johnson, 41, of New York City.

The family of the other child, who has not been named, is still in shock.

Both kids are in stable condition.

The boy, now 14, was struck in the face and face-first with a bat at about 1 a.m.

Sunday in the Bronx.

Police have said the child was playing in the yard of a home.

He was struck multiple times in the head and chest.

Police said the father and daughter were playing baseball in a yard when they saw the bat and ran.

Police said the girl was struck once in the chest and was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital.

The father was taken into custody Monday night, the girl and the other kid have not been charged.

Police did not release the name of the man who hit the girl.
