A 3-year-old Illinois boy is not expected to survive after being thrown off a Chicago pier into Lake Michigan.
Police say the boy’s aunt “stole the keys” to the family’s truck before sneaking “out of the residence without anyone knowing that she had left.”
Security footage captured the incident as Victoria Moreno, 34, pushed the child into the water and made no attempts to rescue him. Fire officials said the child was taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital, in cardiac arrest. He’s been placed on a ventilator.
Police added that the child had lung bleeding, a swollen brain, and had to have a heart infusion.
