Three-month old fighting for life after she was 'neglected and abused' by her father


A three-month-old baby is fighting for her life after suffering serious abuse and neglect 'to the brink of death'.

Addilyn Tidwell sustained several broken bones and damage to her brain and other internal organs, allegedly at the hands of her 30-year-old father.

Michael Fisher, of Lawrenceburg Tennessee, has been arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder after he and Addilyn's mother Brooklyn Tidwell, 27, sought medical help for the baby last month.
