A 7-month-old baby boy who was tossed from the fourth floor of a hospital parking structure died Wednesday, the same day his mother made an initial court appearance on charges of attempted murder and felony child abuse, a police spokesman said.
The child died Wednesday morning at UC Irvine Medical Center and charges against the mother, Sonia Hermosillo, 31, will be upgraded to murder, said Sgt. Dan Adams, spokesman for the Orange Police Department.
Prosecutors allege that Hermosillo removed a helmet that her son wore for a medical condition before tossing him from the parking structure at Children's Hospital of Orange County late Monday. She then went back inside the hospital to validate her parking, senior deputy district attorney Scott Simmons said after Hermosillo's hearing.
Hermosillo's husband, Noe Medina, told the Orange County Register that his wife had been hospitalized for postpartum depression in June after she said she didn't want their son, Noe Medina Jr., who was diagnosed with congenital muscular torticollis - a twisting of the neck to one side.
The infant also wore a helmet to help correct his plagiocephaly, also known as flat-head syndrome, the Register reported.

Hermosillo made a brief court appearance Wednesday, but her arraignment was postponed until Sept. 16.
Orange County Superior Court Judge Joe Perez set bail at $1 million, but federal immigration officials have a no-bail hold to keep her in custody because she is in the country illegally, said Jim Amormino, sheriff's spokesman.
She's an illegal alien so what medical plan pays for this:
Hermosillo's husband, Noe Medina, told the Orange County Register that his wife had been hospitalized for postpartum depression in June
The infant also wore a helmet to help correct his plagiocephaly, also known as flat-head syndrome
Medina said the boy was receiving physical therapy twice a week and was showing signs of improvement.
Not a bad medical plan
Fourth trimester abortion
The medical plan would be Medi-Cal, funded by California taxpayers.
A tragedy for all ... May he rest in peace.
God rest this child. Just heartbreaking.
Look Obama, this is who you want to give amnesty to.
“She then went back inside the hospital to validate her parking,”
Illegal aliens are always very good at following the rules when it is to their advantage. I bet she dotted all of the “i”s and crossed all of the “t”’s on her MediCal application.
What a psycho this woman is. Give her the chair.
I have a little boy who had both torticollis and plagiocephaly as an infant. He only wanted to turn his head in one direction. He also would only sleep on that one side. We did physical therapy, and he wore the helmet to protect and correct his head. He is a happy, healthy, handsome 5 year-old now.
End times alert.
Unfortunately for the mother, she didn’t commit the crime in Florida.
That’s right. Otherwise known as a Spartan/Roman abortion. Dash the baby’s head on a rock after it is born. In fact, its unfair to punish this woman since she can’t afford a normal abortion. Preventing the poor from killing their babies will only mean rich white women can get abortions.
I would have gladly taken him.
If the husband knew how ‘ill’ his wife was, and still allowed her lone access to the baby, then he is responsible for this death as well IMO.
As a new mom myself, this story makes me physically ill.
Also wondering, who is/was paying for these medical bills if they were here illegally?
