UPDATE, AUG. 24, 4:24 P.M.: Mother Sonia Hermosillo, who was arraigned today for allegedly attempting to murder Noe Medina Jr., will be arraigned Thursday for her baby's murder. See "Noe Medina Jr., OC Homicide No. 40" for more details.

UPDATE, AUG. 24, 1:43 P.M.: NBC 4 is reporting that the baby, Noe Medina Jr., died this morning at the UC Irvine Medical Center.

UPDATE, AUG. 24, 1:32 P.M.: The Orange County District Attorney's office has released a statement on Sonia Hermosillo's arraignment, scheduled for today.

Hermosillo, 31, La Habra, faces a maximum sentence of 15 years to life in state prison if she is convicted of her charges: One felony count of attempted murder with premeditation and deliberation and one felony count of child abuse causing great bodily injury. A bail of $1 million is being requested.

It has also come to light that Hermosillo did indeed remove her seven-month-old son's helmet, which he wore to correct his plagiocephaly (a common syndrome in which one side of an infant's head is flattened), before pushing her baby from the fourth floor of the Children's Hospital of Orange County parking structure.

Check out the DA's full statement at the bottom of the post.

UPDATE, AUG. 24, 9:37 A.M.: The OC Register is reporting that Sonia Hermosillo, who is accused of throwing her seven-month-old son from the parking structure of the Children's Hospital of Orange County, was treated for postpartum depression after stating she no longer wanted the child.

Why? Because Noe Medina Jr. was diagnosed with congenital muscular torticollis (a twisting of the neck muscles).

"She didn't look at our son as normal," Hermosillo's husband, Noe Medina, reportedly said.
He told that to the Register, adding, "She didn't accept him. She didn't accept that he was like this."

His wife had been taking medication for her postpartum depression and was beginning to show signs of improvement, Medina disclosed.

Noe Jr., who underwent physical therapy two times a week at the Children's Hospital, wore a helmet to help with his plagiocephaly, a common syndrome in which one side of an infant's head is flattened. At this time, it is not known whether the baby was wearing his helmet at the time of the incident.

Medina and Hermospillo also have two other daughters, ages 7 and 10.

UPDATE, AUG. 23, 9:20 A.M.: Police have arrested a 31-year-old La Habra mother, Sonia Hermosillo, on suspicion of attempted murder.

The LA Times is reporting that the father of the child reported the missing boy Monday evening.

Soon after the incident, Hermosillo's car was found.

"There was a child seat in the vehicle," a press release stated, "But no baby."

ORIGINAL POST, AUG. 22, 2011, 10:06 P.M.: CNN is reporting that a seven-month-old baby (note: Various outlets are reporting the baby is a three-month-old--Sgt. Dan Adams of Orange PD has confirmed the baby's age is indeed seven months old) fell from the parking structure at the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC).

A female pedestrian is said to have witnessed the fall and called police, who speculate that the infant was possibly tossed from the second, third or fourth level of the parking structure.

The baby remains in critical condition at the UC Irvine Medical Center trauma unit--and no further details on its gender or name have been released.

"Obviously a baby can't climb over a railing, so something did happen," Orange Police Department Sgt. Dan Adams tells CNN.

If you have information on the incident, please call Orange police at (714) 744-7444.

MOTHER CHARGED AND TO BE ARRAIGNED FOR ATTEMPTING TO MURDER 7-MONTH-OLD SON BY PUSHING HIM FROM FOURTH STORY OF HOSPITAL PARKING STRUCTURE

SANTA ANA - A mother has been charged and will be arraigned today for attempting to murder her 7-month-old baby by pushing him from the fourth story of a hospital parking structure. Sonia Hermosillo, 31, La Habra, is charged with one felony count of attempted murder with premeditation and deliberation and one felony count of child abuse causing great bodily injury. If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of 15 years to life in state prison. The People will be requesting Hermosillo be held on $1 million bail, and she is also subject to a no-bail Customs and Immigration Enforcement hold. The defendant is expected to be arraigned today, Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2011, in Department CJ-1, Central Jail, Santa Ana. Based on the arraignment process in in Department CJ-1, the time is to be determined and will not be available in advance.

On Aug. 22, 2011, Hermosillo is accused of driving her 7-month-old son, Baby Doe, to the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and parking her car on the fourth floor of a parking structure. The baby suffered medical conditions that required him to be treated at CHOC regularly, but he did not have a scheduled appointment that day. The victim wore a helmet on his head for one of his medical conditions.

At approximately 6:20 p.m., Hermosillo is accused of removing the victim's helmet and pushing her baby from the parking structure with the intention of murdering him with the four-story fall. After attempting to murder Baby Doe, Hermosillo is accused of walking inside the hospital, validating her parking, and fleeing the scene.

A witness who saw the baby falling through the air called 911 and the Orange Police Department (OPD), who is investigating this case, responded to the scene. Baby Doe was transported to the trauma center at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center and remains in critical condition.

OPD obtained a license plate number from a vehicle and matched it to an address in La Habra. The La Habra Police Department (LHPD) and OPD began to communicate and it was determined that Hermosillo's husband had just called LHPD to report the defendant and his son missing.

At approximately 10:15 p.m., Hermosillo is accused of driving past CHOC on Main Street and was observed by an OPD officer. She was arrested at the scene.

The defendant is married and has two other children.

Senior Deputy District Attorney Scott Simmons of the Homicide Unit is prosecuting this case.


UPDATE, AUG. 26, 9:51 A.M.: Sonia Hermosillo, who allegedly pushed her seven-month-old baby boy from the fourth floor of the Children's Hospital of Orange County parking structure on Monday, is currently under suicide watch. A doctor has found her mentally unfit to attend court and her arraignment has been postponed to Monday.

Orange County Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino adds that the arraignment date could be delayed once again if doctors determine Hermosillo is still mentally unfit to attend court. 

The baby, Noe Jr., died of his injuries on Wednesday morning.

As I walked along main street next to CHOC, I reached down to pick up my son and hold him in my arms. I embraced our love and bond and realized how much he needs me. We both stood in front of baby Noe's memorial, signs of get well from supporters, gifts, and other signs of care from people showered the foot of a tree. I was unaware that baby Noe had passed, at the right corner at the foot of the tree I glanced out of the corner of my eye and saw a little mickey figurine that read RIP, the only sign that announced his death. I hugged my son ( 18 month old) with firm arms, kissed him, and said " I love you and God loves you, baby Noe will always be a reminder to us of how we should protect those who can't protect themselves". He looked into my eyes and knew I was disturbed, he gave me a great big hug and reassured me that everything will be okay. My son was being treated for diabetes insipidus at CHOC, the children their are ill, some mentally, physically, and psychologically, but most of all defenseless, unable to care for themselves. I give a great deal of respect to those parents who have stuck by their children and have/ continue to suffer with their child's ilness, it effects all.

This woman deserves whats coming to her, I realize she is mentally disturbed, anyone with the will to kill a child has something mentally and psychologically wrong with them. The creator knows these people who cause these harms and will deliver justice to them in this life or the other. For those people who don't believe in GOD, thats okay because I do, and I do agree that religions especially the Christian religion have had a negative effect on the way people are controlled and the way they are made to think. But you guys have missed the point, this is baby Noe's story and other like him who suffer these illnesses and are defenseless. Comment some real stuff not your opinion on who you think is to blame for or what logical reason you have for what this person did. Children are a gift from God and any righteous parent or person who has being around children know of the true innocence of God creation. Whether their you have question of the existence of God or not, no rational theories have ever proven his existence or non-exsitence, what force caused the big bang, what amount of energy created the universe, energy can never be created nor destroyed, it is called the God Theorem. You will never prove it, you will continue to go around in a circle, just the way we here on earth do. A Circle very universal in earth and in the univerese. A bird lays eggs that are shapped in a special cirlce called an elliptical circle and where it lays them is in a nest shaped in a cirlce. This is a path for those who choose to disprove the exsistence of God. Everything works in a circle. Food for thought. Rest in Peace in the arms embraced by the affection of our creator baby Noe, he will be a father and mother to your from now on.

This bitch is crazy. It seems like more and more these days I find myself reading articles just like this one. People doing terrible things to one another without any rhyme or reason. Between this hurricane irene and the earthquake I felt Tuesday it seems like the beginning of the end. WATCH OUT PEOPLE!!!

As I read all of these comments, quite interesting. God has his reasons, he is never wrong and always right, he has his reasons and we must not judge but rather accept, we can say all we want but The King knows whats up. I will admit, I too was disturbed and had great hatred but in the end I realized: no matter how passionately we hate, angrynize all this...there is NOTHING that we can do....my mom once said "whats the benefit in getting angry?? " .... your just wasting 60 seconds of happiness.

Just has God forgives you for all your sins, its the reason HE DIED (for all of us & for our sins), forgive and let go. Forgive your neighbors just as God continues to forgive us.I was at a bustop yesterday and I read a sign that said "thousands of men die each year from stubborness".

That doesn't mean "oh its no problem, shes free"...her conscience at some point will haunt her of this all her life, im pretty sure if we had someone related with postpartum depression, we would accompany and not hate and apart ourselves.

If we were Sonia Hermosillo, would be want to be forgiven or be teased at and be thrown things at our face and revenge back?....

Our social welfare system is overburdened and understaffed.  There are organizations such as Boys Town California and other local nonprofit groups that can help.  Boys Town has a hotline that anyone can call in need of treatment or family services.  That number is 1 (800) 448-3000 and staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide assistance.  They have helped more than eight million teens, parents and families to deal with issues such these and offer in-home services to families in crisis as well as common sense parenting tips.  With greater awareness of these services, perhaps another senseless tragedy can be avoided.

hmm, lets see... baby born with defect, hospital stay for maternity, doctor visits.. etc... im guessing this pendeja cost this country at least $100,000 dollars for her anchor baby.. now add the cost of incarceration and we are looking at  a million easy.... should have spent the money sterilizing her and the other wetback women instead

What does this case have to do with immigration or nationality of the people involved?  We are talking about a family that obviously had serious problems.  I dont see many people talking about our lame social services, if ONE call was placed to them and they chose not to do anything about it, they are to be blamed.  For what I am reading, there was evedince that something like this could happen.

unfortunately, it's too late to play the blame game, what is done is done :'( .... the baby is now resting in peace and free of pain. I will pray for the father and mother so that they can find peace in their hearts and heal their soul. i hope anyone who knows of someone suffering of postpartum depression or postpartum psychosis can get the help they need.

This. If this woman was not here in the US -- which she isn't supposed to be -- we wouldn't have to pay the tab for prosecuting and incarcerating her -- plus of course the K-11 housing of her kids in our 'educational' system (no doubt including free lunch).

People like to talk about all the benefits of cheap labor (picking strawberries! Mowing lawns!). We, this woman exemplifies the costs. There is no way she and her husband would have ever paid enough taxes to even begin to cover the costs of them being here.

First, whether rightly or wrongly, Anthony was found not guilty.

Second, yes, we generate our own citizen trash; that doesn't mean we need to import more.

Not really. America as such didn't exist before European colonization. Sure, the land was here, but the concept of 'America' was totally absent. Indian tribes didn't call themselves 'Americans' -- usually they just called themselves 'people' in whatever language they spoke, and everyone else "Native American" and European settler alike, where non-people.

No, America is the creation of the white man, more specifically the Anglo white man.

Oh, and Mexico controlled California for all of 24 years.

Yes, guest2 racists are only racists because they don't know not only US history but world history and the history of mankind.  It's a lot easier if you just read their posts and feel sorry for them and their ignorance. ;)

Thank goodness there's a "flag" option so their ignorant posts can be reported. :p

I have been thinking of hanging my Klan outfit up for sometime. Its just not the same anymore. Now i got people telling em that we actually came from Europe and probably have some Black and italian in us. Its just that i have a small shlong and i never get to date latino or black girls.

Really?  "here" as of where?  Where?  California, Arizona, Texas and New Mexico, at a time were part of Mexico.  And the rest was stablished by the British that came from Ingland looking for religion freedom, and then this country has been growing with immigrants from all of the world, or just because someone is from Europe or white skin, that makes them non-immigrant?   

The sad part is that is what makes this country so wondeful, its because people always come here looking for a better life and it is very sad to read all the hate in posts that have nothing to do it.

I dont see a difference in this case if the people involved were Chinese or "white" (like you call it), or african american, or an arabic family ...........
