A Panama City man was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse.
26-year-old Michael Elmer, of Panama City allegedly shook, struck and threw a three month old baby.
Elmer was left home alone with his two children, the baby and an 18-month old child while their mother was at work.
Investigators say Elmer allegedly hit the child repeatedly and shook her and threw her on the couch, but didn't call for medical attention.
When the baby's mother got home four hours later, the infant was taken to the hospital.
The baby has since been Life Flighted to Sacred Heart in Pensacola.
