Toddler whose hands glued to wall out of hospital

A Texas toddler has been released from the hospital a week after her mother allegedly glued her hands to a wall.

The 2-year-old was in a coma for two days after the Sept. 7 incident.

Dallas police say her mother was mad about the youngster's potty training problems. The child was also kicked repeatedly in the stomach.

Elizabeth Escalona remains jailed on a charge of felony injury to a child.

At a court hearing Wednesday, a Dallas County judge ordered that the toddler and her three siblings would stay in foster care.

Some of the 22-year-old mother's friends told WFAA-TV that she snapped under the pressure.

KDFW-TV reports that in 2007, Escalona was ordered to take parenting classes and undergo counseling. But Child Protective Services didn't remove her kids.
