A 5-year-old Albuquerque boy who was thrown into a dresser continues to fight for his life.
911 tapes obtained by KOB 4 reveal the man accused of the abuse gave law enforcement different stories about what happened.
A criminal complaint reveals Richard Gutierrez admitted to Albuquerque Police that he threw the boy into bedroom furniture after the boy lied about wetting his pants.
As a result, doctors told police that the boy had lost all brain activity.
But on the 911 audio tape, Gutierrez told 911 dispatchers that the boy fell on his own.
"My son fell off the bed and he's not breathing. I don't know if he hit his head or what," Gutierrez said.
For eight minutes, Gutierrez tries to convince dispatchers that he was not responsible for the boy’s injuries.
"I was in the living room with the baby and he fell off the bed,” Gutierrez told a 911 operator. “I don't know how he fell off the bed but he was by the TV and he was all messed up.”
911 operators tried coaching Gutierrez into giving the boy CPR and chest compressions.
Gutierrez made a first felony appearance in Metropolitan Court today.
Judge Benjamin Chavez held the bond at $125,000.
As of Thursday evening, APD reported that the boy’s health had made no progress and his injuries are still considered life threatening.
