LAUDERHILL, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police have arrested a man under the suspicion he shook his girlfriend's baby to death.
Lauderhill Police were notified Saturday at around 11 a.m. after a 10-month-old baby had arrived to the University Hospital in Tamarac without a pulse.
Rescue efforts made by hospital staff brought the baby back to life, and the child was then airlifted to Broward General Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, where they infant was pronounced dead.
Police said the baby's mother, Sandra Davilas, 25, left her child with her boyfriend, Allen Rosario, 26, when she went to work, and he is responsible for the baby's death.
Authorities said Rosario called his girlfriend minutes after she left
and said it was an emergency, and she must meet him at the hospital.
Investigators believed Rosario had violently shaken the baby, causing severe internal injuries, which led to the baby's death.
Rosario had previously faced aggravated child abuse, but authorities now say it will change to murder. Lauderhill Police Captain Rick Rocco said they looked into claims that the child fell off a bed. "Our investigators have been inside the apartment based on a search warrant, and the highest height of one of the beds is about 20 inches. The injuries to this child are very unlikely that they occurred from falling off the bed."
