I was driving on east on Balmoral near the corner of Magnolia around 12:15pm today and I saw an African-American women in her late 20’s (hair brown, shoulder length) rolling and thrashing on the sidewalk. At first I thought she had tripped or something then I saw her roll over and she had a male toddler in her arms. She stood him up. He was a little blond boy small framed with a tricycle near them with one of those chrome pushing poles. Then the women was diving and thrashing on the ground and the little tot stood shaking and crying. I tried to ask if the woman was ok and she looked at me with a cooky look and dove onto the ground again. Seconds later she was laying on the ground covering her butt with one hand and her head with the other and I thought she had maybe been injured on the nearby limestone boulders. I was calling 911 for assistance and asked if she needed an ambulance. She said No.. A few seconds later she stood up, put her hair back into a bun collected sunglasses, keys and other things strewn on the grass, calmly gathered the child and acted like nothing ever happened. I asked if she was epileptic, again no real response. She looked but did not talk to me. I tried to pull my car around to get closer to the sidewalk and they were gone. I am very concerned for the little guy. I seem to remember him having had a little fisherman’s hat, light colored shorts and shirt, and was quite upset. I don’t know if this women is ill but that was crazy behavior.
