Before leaving their kids with any babysitter or daycare center, parents should properly vet the adults who will be caring for their children. Otherwise, you could find yourself in this terrible situation like this Ohio family who will never get their little girl back.
Lindsay Partin, 35, has been arrested and charged with child endangerment and assault. She’s pled not guilty, according to local news outlets who site court records and a statement by the Butler County Sheriff’s Department. Partin allegedly beat 3-year-old little Hannah Wesche so severely she was left brain dead and on life support at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
Partin, according to jail records, posted a $30,000 bond. She’s expected to return to court this week.
“This little girl is hanging on by a thread,” said Sheriff Richard K. Jones in the statement about Hanah, who’s from Hamilton Township, Ohio.
“Cases like this rip your heart out. I don’t understand why or how anyone harms a child.”
Jason Wesche, Hannah’s father, appeared in court on Monday where he revealed the devastating news that his daughter isn’t expected to live. “Within the next couple of days, we’ve been told that it’s going to come to an end,” he told a judge, Fox 19 Cincinnati reports.
“We just want to stress that this situation is devastating,” he said, the outlet reports.
The horrible event leading up to this tragic outcome began a week ago when police and EMTs responded to a call about a little girl, who according to Partin was unconscious.
