SoCal Mom Faces Charges In Baby’s Fall

SANTA ANA, Calif., Aug. 24 (UPI) — Prosecutors said a Southern California mother allegedly shoved her baby from a hospital parking garage and then left after having her ticket validated.

Sonia Hermosillo, 31, of La Habra was arrested this week after a witness reported seeing her pushing her 7-month-old son from the fourth floor of the parking structure and then walking inside to validate her parking ticket before driving off.

Hermosillo faced arraignment Wednesday on felony charges of child abuse and attempted murder, the Orange County District Attorney’s office said in a written statement. Prosecutors planned to seek $1 million bail as well as an immigration hold on the woman.

Prosecutors said Hermosillo’s son, dubbed Baby Doe, suffered from an unspecified medical condition that required him to wear a helmet and undergo regular visits to Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Hermosillo allegedly removed the head gear before she pushed him.

Baby Doe was taken to the University of California, Irvine Medical Center where he was in critical condition.
