A Vado mother is in jail and investigators are trying to figure out how her one-month-old son died. Aracelia Lopez, 21, is charged with child abuse resulting in the death of her baby, Juan Granados.
We're told it all started with a series of 911 calls from a Vado mobile home. First, the caller said the infant was having seizures and then they said the baby stopped breathing. The baby died on the way to the hospital.
Investigators say Lopez told them she was breastfeeding her son on the couch when he threw himself out of her arms and hit his head on the armrest. The problem is investigators say all the armrests are padded and there's no way the baby could have died from those injuries.
Autopsy results will reveal the cause of death.
