Baby falls from hospital.

Orange police said they are looking for the person responsible for a baby falling from the upper stories of parking structure at Children's Hospital of Orange County.

Sgt. Dan Adams of the Orange Police Department told The Times the infant could not have made it over the ledge on his own.

He called the incident a "horrific crime."

The infant, believed to be 1 to 3 months old, was in critical condition at a local trauma center after being dropped or thrown from the second floor or higher of the structure, police said.

The Orange Fire Department said it received a 911 call at 6:19 p.m. from someone saying a baby was possibly thrown from the parking structure. Police said the caller saw the baby falling from the parking structure at the hospital.
