Funeral held for baby who fell from O.C. parking structure

Noe Medina's funeral service was held.
Funeral services were held Wednesday for a 7-month-old boy who died after he allegedly was thrown by his mother from an Orange County hospital parking structure .

The services for Noe Medina Jr. were held in La Habra as his mother, Sonia Hermosillo, 31, remained in jail on a suicide watch, authorities said.

Hermosillo is charged with murder and assault on a child with force likely to produce great bodily injury resulting in death, prosecutors said.

Police received a 911 call about 6:20 p.m. Aug. 22 from a man who said he had seen a baby fall from the parking garage at Children's Hospital of Orange County. Using surveillance video, investigators identified a Chevrolet Blazer that was seen leaving the garage minutes after the incident.

The Blazer was linked to Hermosillo.  She was taken into custody without incident. Noe was hospitalized in critical condition and died afterward. See the KTLA-TV Channel 5 website for a report on the funeral service.
