Charges filed against parents who didn't seek help for injured son

EAST CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Charges have been filed against a mom and dad who did not seek help for their injured son.

Derrell Wilson and Dianna Smith are charged with child endangering and felonious assault.

Smith is already behind bars.

19 Action News has learned the couple's 4-year-old was playing with a mattress that was leaning on a wall, when it fell on him.

Smith didn't get the boy help for days. The child suffered a fractured skull and possibly a broken arm.

Cuyahoga County social workers say Smith has three kids, and is currently moving to take custody of them.
