A Georgia woman was arrested after she allegedly sat on her son's head for an hour to make him "submissive," resulting in the 2-year-old passing out.

Susan Elizabeth Kelley, 36, is accused of putting her son's head on a wooden dining room chair May 11 and then sitting on his head to teach him discipline, according to the details of a police report obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

“The accused sat on the child’s head, with full body weight, for approximately 1 hour in an attempt to gain ‘submission’ from the child,” the warrant reads.

The boy lost consciousness and was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, where he was treated for "redness" on his head, chest and back, the newspaper reported. He's expected to make a full recovery.

Kelley was charged with first-degree cruelty to children, a felony. She was arraigned and sent to jail before posting the $55,220 bond May 12, according to WSBTV.

It wasn't immediately clear if the child was returned to the custody of his mother, or if Child Protective Services was involved in the case.
