Caught on tape: Dad throws toddler into pool!

A Phoenix dad has been arrested after he was caught on camera allegedly throwing his 23-month-old daughter into a pool. Police say Corey McCarthy can be seen throwing the toddler into the pool repeatedly, as a woman jumps into the water fully clothed to get her out.

McCarthy's family says the little girl had dropped a puppy into the pool and drowned it, and her father was trying to make her fear the water so she would stay away from it.  Authorities say the puppy incident happened with the toddler was near the pool without adult supervision. 

The family says McCarthy knows what he did was wrong. He is charged with two counts of child abuse.
