COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KTRK) - An infant is set to undergo surgery after his babysitter reportedly shook and threw him against a wall when he wouldn't stop crying in College Station, according to records.
It's unimaginable. The violent scene that played out on Jan. 19. Five-month-old Baby Adrian and his 2-year-old brother were with a babysitter in College Station while their parents were at work.
"It's totally unjust," said Fidelina Velasquez, Adrian's mother. "My baby is so small. He can't walk, he can't talk. He can't speak for himself. He is just a baby."
This was only their second time to stay with Berta Evelin Lopez Vasquez, who was referred to the family by a friend.
"I have no idea why she reacted this way," said Velasquez.
Court documents say Lopez-Vasquez eventually told investigators that she lost it when the 5-month-old baby would not stop crying. She said she shook the baby vigorously and threw Adrian out of frustration at least six feet at a wall. When he hit the ground, court documents say his eyes rolled back, he was seizing and stopped breathing.
Lopez-Vasquez is now in jail charged with serious bodily injury to a child.
"Officials will decide which charges should be put on her," said Velasquez. "Everything she has done is so unjust to my child."
What the future holds for Baby Adrian, his mother is not sure yet. He's scheduled for a second surgery this week at Texas Children's Hospital.
"He moves a little bit," said Velasquez. "He opens his eyes but he sleeps a lot too but he's stable and now we are waiting for the future surgery on Thursday and they'll know more after that."
Lopez-Vasquez is being held on $200,000 bond.
