An Ohio woman is facing charges after she hit her grandson, causing his death, police say.
ABC 13 reports that Toledo Fire responded to numerous calls on September 19 about a child who supposedly “fell off of a bed.” After administering CPR they took the boy to Toledo Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Doctors said the child’s injuries were not consistent with falling off of a bed.
Authorities later interviewed the child’s grandmother, identified as Yisenya Flores, who allegedly admitted she struck the child. Police said Flores explained that the boy became lethargic and couldn’t pull himself up from the floor afterward, but she decided not to call 911.
Flores was arrested and charged with endangering children. Authorities said additional charges may follow.
