A Charleston, South Carolina boy is in critical condition after he was hanged by his ankles in a closet and repeatedly beaten by three teenagers, according to authorities.

According to reports, police were called to a hospital Tuesday when the child's mother Shakera Suncelaree Wright, 18, brought 18-month old Louis Wright in with multiple signs of trauma, including face swelling and fractured ribs.

When questioned by authorities, Wright said she was visiting friend Tyrek Varnes, 16, at his home. Varnes had two other friends, a 14 and 15-year-old visiting him also. She went on to say the three teens "play-wrestled" with the boy and hit him until she told them to stop.

Later, according to Wright, she put her child in bed with Varnes and then went to the adjoining room to sleep. The next morning after noticing the child's “dazed” behavior, the mother eventually called an ambulance.

When the child arrived at the hospital, he was already suffering respiratory distress.

Attending physicians also noticed pronounced bruising throughout his torso and a CAT scan revealed five rib fractures, air and blood in his thorax, multiple lacerations of his liver, spleen and pancreas.

Wright and Varnes, along with the 14 and 15-year-old teens were all charged with infliction or allowing infliction to great bodily injury to a child. Varnes was charged as an adult, and he also confessed everyone's role in the toddler's abuse to police.

They could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted of the felony charges.
