Danielle Busby (pictured) called 9-1-1, after slitting the throat of her 1-year-old toddler on Monday, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Report: Trayvon Once Suspended For ‘Burglary Tool’

Police say that Busby slit her daughter’s throat across the larynx, but she missed cutting the child’s carotid artery, which could have killed her. Even though the child underwent surgery and is listed in critical condition, doctors are hopeful that she will survive.

Before the incident, Busby had been diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Concerned family members have called authorities in the past over their concern of Busby’s interactions with her child. On March 19, authorities were called after her sister feared for her niece’s safety. Investigators questioned the Mom, who is a former math teacher with the Dallas Independent School District, and determined that the little girl was not in any danger. However, police did tell Busby’s sister that she could call Child Protective Services if she felt that her niece was in harm’s way at any given time.

In another incident last June, family members again summoned the authorities when they found Busby walking down a street wearing a mere blouse and panties. When the police arrived at the scene, they found Busby in a confused and nervous state, so they took her to a nearby hospital where she was treated.

Busby is a graduate of Southern Methodist University and has done missionary work in rural parts of Africa and Central America.

Busby has been arrested and charged with injuring a child; bail was set at $150,000.
