La Habra Mother Accused Of Throwing Baby From Parking Structure

IRVINE (CBS) — A La Habra mother has been arrested for allegedly throwing her 7-month-old baby off of a parking garage.

KNX 1070’s Jon Baird Reports

Sonia Hermosillo, 31, is accused of throwing her son from the fourth floor of the west parking structure at Children’s Hospital Orange County in Orange.

Noe Medina was hospitalized in critical condition at UC Irvine Medical Center Tuesday morning.

“This is a defenseless child who is now clinging to life at a local hospital, so we’re glad that it came to the conclusion that it did, we’re glad that we were able to get her in custody,” said Sgt. Dan Adams of the Orange County Police Department.

Hermosillo’s husband had called police to report his wife and son missing before the incident.

At 10:15 p.m. Monday, an Orange police officer spotted Hermosillo driving past the hospital because her license plate number had been captured by CHOC’s security cameras earlier in the evening.

An empty child seat was found in her SUV.

She is now in custody and faces one count of attempted murder. Her bail has not been set. She’s expected to appear in court Wednesday for her arraignment.

    I agree with you all on his one
    Deport her

    1. Rachel Catron says:

      How do you even know she’s illegal? I don’t recall reading that in the article or hearing it in the video…

    2. Steve says:

      Deport her and then WHAT let her live back in her country if she’s illegal and forget she committed a crime? She has to pay for what she did with either life, death or a very long sentence but in prison.

        Learn proper English before speaking with the adults. Night school has excellent solutions to your English problem.

    4. Ivy says:

      I say we throw her off the highest level of the parking structure and see if she likes it.

    5. lol says:

      Why deport her? That would be doing her a favor. I say let her sit in the slammer..

    6. Stryker 21 says:

      The news today said there is hold on her for being a bottom feeding, welfare, third world toilet ILLEGAL ALIEN. God help that baby, execute her and put the baby up for adoption.

      1. PAYAZA818 says:

      4. Suzi says:

        oops for adoption

    7. Rebecca Martens says:

      It is stunning how not one person below asks why? What would trigger a woman to throw her “special needs” baby over the 4th floor garage railing? What happened at CHOC rehabilitation Center? What did she see? What did she hear? Was it another woman in despare over her handicapped son not recieving items like a stair-lift, ergonomic bed for right leg blood profusion, walk-in bath, rails, ramp? Because the therapist Jenni Chui PT feels that “wet backs shouldn’t recieve expensive items on the State, using tax payers money. That these wet backs should dig more ditches, pick more fruit, clean more toilets, look after more people’s children and at 1/3 of the salary any American would recieve. Then provide all those items themselves plus go to all the doctor appoints, PT appointments, surgeries, aftercare out of pocket.
      This child would be alive today if CHOC, medi-Cal and CCS provided better services quicker without shame and red tape.

        One less Mexican. Great. Doesn’t get any better than this.

      2. PAYAZA818 says:

        HEY P U R SICK

  2. Jaime says:

    wth? she is one nutty b/tch… I think they should throw her off a building..

    1. David Kaplan says:

      I like to make a comment on the mother tossing a baby from the parking structure in Orange County. That is a attempted murder. Her marriage is out the window. It is over. That is crazy and dumb.

  3. How? says:

    What a b*tch is an understatement. And the poor father who had nothing to do with it. I pray the baby survives without any permanent damage and that she rots in hell.

  4. Johns says:

    If she really did it, she needs to be thrown to the lions, and feed them with this heartless animal.

  5. Rachel Catron says:

    So that’s what the devil looks like.

    1. Steve says:

      The devil has many looks and can appear in any shape or form.

  6. Astonished says:

    Look, let’s look at this without pulling the race card. We know that she has “issues” because no sane, intellegent person would do this. Having said that, she will probably get some ambulance chasing lawyer attached to her case who will plead either that due to stress in her life or the fact that she was never bottle fed as an infant she has deminished capacity or or she’s insane because she was abused, even if there’s no proof. (Reference: The Casey Anthony case) That being said she will probably never see the inside of a prison, but will be taken to Patton or some other mental facility and released when she is “all better.”

    Some people should never be allowed to have children. Maybe we should institute a mental capacity test before couples can have children.

    1. Me says:

      I totally agree!

  7. ginny says:

    There is no place in this world for people like this, evil, just plain evil. But unfotunately our legal system will slap her wrist and let her have he child again. I pray the child survives and they place him in a safe, loving home instead of returning it to this woman.

  8. alimiel says:

    Some of you people….Like WaLLy should not be allowed to post just like this cold, heartless poor excuse for a human being should not be allowed to breed. in my opinion there should be mandatory sterilization for women like this MONSTER who bring innocent babies into this world just to throw them off buildings or dump them in trash cans.

    1. Oh My... says:

      Wally shouldn’t be allowed to post simply because he expressed his own opinions that happen to differ from yours? Geez, are you THAT ignorant and self-centered?

  9. Joe says:

    Only people who are possessed by the devil would throw babies off structures.

    There is no excuse for her to kill her baby. Regardless if she is legal or illegal, if a person commits a crime in this country, he/she needs to be punished, period!

    If the husband called the police to report her wife and kid missing, this simply means that the father is deeply concerned on the safety of his child.

    I hope the baby lives because for the baby to survive that fall is a miracle. Though the baby is in a very critical condition, the baby is still fighting to stay alive.

  10. cloudnine says:

    Oh God forgive me for the thoughts I’m having against this woman. As a mother & a human being, HOW CAN SOMEONE DO THIS!!This story made me sick!
    Being a mother is to be your child’s protector. To betray that is non-human!!!

  11. Steve says:

    Too bad it wasn’t yours idiot.

  12. maria says:

    Race has nothing to do with any this u immature people be realistic seriously….Casey Anthony was no different so for u to be putting blame on hispanics Is really wrong….I just hope and pray that little boy survives and as for the mom she will suffer because regret will come in sooner or later and she will have it in her conscious for ever and that’s the worst…

    1. mk says:

      Exactly Maria! What about Andrea Yates who drowned her five children, Casey Anthony, Susan Smith who drove her car into a lake with her two children inside, or Shaquan Duley who suffocated her two toddlers, and many more who were not hispanic. What this biotch did was disgusting and she will serve her time in prison. I really do hope this baby makes it, and I feel sorry for the father of this baby that is now also suffering.

      1. Karen says:

        Andrea Yates called her husband and then the police. This woman was attempting to flee. BIG difference. This person is not mentally ill.

    2. Astonished says:

      Suffering such as you describe can only occur IF she has a conscious and a soul. Look at her eyes. . .I doubt very seriously that she possesses either quality.

  13. new mommy says:

    lighting a candle of healing for this baby tonight..
    Hoping and praying the baby survives. Miracle baby he will be and is.
    Noe , you are in my prayers.
    as for the mom all i have to say is good luck in prison, i hear baby abusers/killers are especially loved there.

  14. Mary Elizabeth says:

    Legal, not legal, what does it matter when this poor defenseless baby boy is clinging to life. Instead of arguing over someone’s legal status, we should all come together to send flowers/donations/bears to this innocent child. Obviously the mom is very ill mentally – for any mother to throw their child/ren over a ledge to the conditions this baby has to endure is just horrific. I don’t know what the outcome of this will be for this precious little baby; let’s hope that the mother will be locked up in a mental institution for the rest of her life so that she may never hurt anyone – ever again! (Sigh) – so tragic – so unnecessary.

    1. Karen says:

      She is not mentally ill. She was caught leaving the facility. That shows intent. She knew what she did was wrong. I want her shot in front of a firing squad. I don’t know what I want. But she needs serious punishment.

  15. John Kells says:

    Orange County Police Department. ???? No such agency. Who writes this stuff?

    1. Timothy McGarry says:

      it said Orange, as in City of.

  16. will ashton says:

    Ever heard the term mental illness

  17. Peace says:

    It’s her baby she can do what she wants. Mind your own beeswax.

    1. Astonished says:

      Wrong. Come out of your 15th Century thinking. Children and women are no longer considered chattel property like couches and tables. In THIS century people are actually supposed to take care of their children.

      It is all of our business to take steps to insure that this doesn’t happen again, if that is even possible. The citizens must because our judicial system can’t seem to do the job.

      Please tell us that your post was an attempt at being cynical, and not your true opinion.

      1. u guys are dorks says:

        Jesus Christ you two, take a pill! It was a joke…wow I want to party with you dillweeds.

    2. Karen says:

      You are a sick individual. Please leave the country. We have enough psychos over here.

  18. Karen says:

    The baby is not expected to survive. This woman needs to be locked up FOREVER. It’s too bad that Jerry Brown let all the lethal injections expire, otherwise we could sentence her to the death penalty.

  19. V says:

    Wow…I guess that killing your children is the only news to make it on television. What a a waste of time with hundreds of thousands dying of hunger daily in other countries. The woman is a monster who should have killed herself instead. Depression is just an excuse for her, as I had postpartum and only thought of doing harm to myself. She is just evil…With a mother like that that baby has a zero chance of survival as well as his two sisters. Husband should have known better than having that animal around.

  20. Ron says:

    @ u guys are dorks: THIS is NOT the type of thing you JOKE about !!! You NEED to take a SENSITIVITY class.

    @peace & duh: Both of YOU, too !!!

    1. duh says:

      Ron, PLEASE, have a seat.. calm down.. breathe.

      There. Better?

      Let me explain. Not every one of these insane stories that are generated multiple times daily require an absolute dry, sensitive, and politically correct response. In fact, this one is SO insane, I’m not sure how you could even rationalize a response in the above vein, but some will try.

      So, this time, my brain went south (in line with the incredulity of this assault on a defenseless newborn), and humor came to the rescue for my own sanity. Sometimes we laugh, lest we cry uncontrollably. If sensitivity training amounts to becoming unemotional auto-bots, then I’ll pass on that course. Take care now, and rest that neck, k?

      1. Astonished says:

        Do you know what is truely insane? If what the father the rest of the family are saying is true, this woman has attempted to kill this poor child more than once, because he was not born perfect. The family says they tried to get her committed because she had Post Partium Depression, and couldn’t get anyone to listen to them. The father of the child was so worried that he and his family were trying to watch her 24/7!. The really crime is that here is a family that tried to get help so that she couldn’t hurt her own son, and THEY WERE DENIED !

        IF THIS IS TRUE, we need to start putting pressure on our child social services agencies to start doing their jobs! If they had, this incident probably wouldn’t have happened. If this poor child survives (and he is in severly critical condition right now), he will probably be a vegetable, and all because someone who could have done the right thing dropped the ball!

        At this point her ethnicity and legal status are not the important things here. The important things are that no one from the proper agencies seems to have stepped up and taken that child into safe custody.

        If the father and his family are just blowing smoke, the whole lot of them needs to be prosecuted for failing to safe guard this child.

      Dear Ron
      Faux Cue.

      God Bless
      Peace

  21. new mommy says:

    @astonished , i agree with you 100% percent

  22. News on Ron says:

    I just read where Ron is a pedophile.
    Thoughts? Anecdotes?

    1. Ron says:

      @News on Ron: You too can be added to that list of people(and I use THAT word VERY loosely, in your case)that NEED to take a sensitivity class.

      @duh: I find it VERY hard to believe that anyone but you, would find your comment appropriate, regarding this HORRIBLE act.

      @Astonished: I too think you are 100% correct.

  23. ANNIE says:

    THIS WOMEN HAS SHONE A UNBALANCED WAY BEFORE BECAUSE HER SISTER TRIED TO GET HER IN A HOSPITAL. SO HOW DO YOU BLAME. ALSO WHY DOES A HUSBAND CONTINUE TO HAVE KIDS WHEN HE KNOWS SHE IS SICK.
