Child Reported Thrown From the Top of Children's Hospital in Orange

This could end up being a very ugly story:
A child believed to have been thrown from the roof of Children's Hospital of Orange County has been taken to another hospital for treatment, fire officials said.

At 6:19 p.m., Orange police and fire departments officials responded to a call saying a child was thrown from the rear of the main hospital building.

A fire supervisor said there was a transport to UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange but did not say if the patient was a child or if it was the only patient.
Both of my kids were treated at that hospital when they were little (4 & 3).  CHOC and it's partner hospital in Mission Viejo are the place to go for kid's treatment in Orange County.

UPDATE:  Another report:
A baby is in critical condition Monday evening after it fell from a parking structure at Children's Hospital in Orange, police said.

The baby, aged between 1 to 3 months old, is believed to be in critical condition after it fell from the second level of the structure around 6:20 p.m. Monday, according to Orange Police.

Police do not know if the baby was dropped or fell and are reviewing surveillance video from inside the structure for more information.
UPDATE 2 - Suspect in custody:
A 31-year-old La Habra woman was in custody Tuesday on suspicion of throwing her 7-month-old son from a parking structure at Children's Hospital Orange County, leaving him critically injured.

The baby was listed in very critical condition after being thrown from the second, third or possibly the fourth floor of the structure at 455 S. Main St. around 6:20 p.m. Monday, Orange police Sgt. Dan Adams said.

“We don't think this was an accident,” Adams said.

The break in the case came after the husband of Sonia Hermosillo contacted La Habra police about his missing wife and son. La Habra police then called the Orange police about the report, Adams said.
