Emma Cardona charged in her daughter's death
Houston police have identified the toddler who died at St. Joseph Hospital last week as Alessay Andrade, and they have charged her mother, Emma Cardona, with endangering a child.

Court documents paint a heartbreaking picture of the child's last conscious moments. They say that the child had been sick, and when her father came home from work he gave her some milk.

"He stated that he picked up the [child]," court documents say, "who said 'Daddy' and started to grab his face. He stated that her arms then went limp and her eyes rolled back in her head."

The court documents say the child died of blunt force trauma to the head.

The documents outline shifting stories by Cardona, who is 19 and the mother of three other children. She initially told investigators the child had been born with "short-bowel" syndrome and had been vomiting and suffering from diarrhea all day.

The father of the child said he had been in contact with Cardona several times that day from his job, and that when he came home no later than 2:10 p.m. they called 911. Emergency-center logs show, however, that the 911 call did not come in until 2:49 p.m.

Investigators noticed a large bruise on the child's forehead and other bruises elsewhere on her body.

Medical Negligence Claims
Medical Negligence Claims

Every year a sufficient percentage of people suffer injuries due to Medical negligence as a result it disturbs their lives.Sometimes Medical negligence of doctors lead chronic problems in their lives.In such cases claim for compensation due to medical negligence can be filed with the assistance of solicitor.

The truth.
The truth.

Fogle.....you fail to mention, the father has been convicted of possession of marijuana and was under investigation for injury to another child, not his own but his extended family. It's real easy to say that there were circumstances that the media have not stated, but I know you know these facts as well. You also fail to mention that the mother m ay have suffered from post partum depression since she recently gave birth to a child. You also fail to mention, that this 19 year old had her first child at 15 and for the past 4 years she has been pregnant and rearing children. My heart breaks for their family, but the mother, whether thru fear of her "situation" or her naivenes, did not call 911 as soon as her daughter had what I believe to be seizure when her eyes rolled back to get immediate medical attention was reckless on her part. had she called, then maybe the blunt force trauma could have been explained cuz it have been the ending result of the blunt forsce trauma. Bottom line the mom knew she had medical issues, and the Truth will come out but bottom line she did not do everything possible to help her child.

The truth.
The truth.

I will also say, please pray that these children are put in a safe and loving home. Whether it is with their father or another family member. The children are the ones who need the prayers and God's mercy. Those are the ones who are truly suffering.

Just sick!! what the f**k is wrong with the world these days! I agree that this women should rot in hell for harming a litttle child! but I think the majority of you ppl commenting are ignorant.. Just because this idiot mom happened to be young doesnt give you all the right to assume that all young/teen moms arent mature enough to take care of their kids! I had my son just a few months before my 21st bday, both my and my bf work. And you know what it was still hard in the beggining but you learn and adjust!! NOT sticking up for this piece of sh*t but I dont think it would have made much of a defference if she had been 35 with 4 kids!! She still would be just as evil.

I complete agree with that.  It is not JUST becuase of age.  Sad as it is we have seen many older adults in courts and media for harming the CHILDREN.  That after all is said and done are the ones that suffer and need to be protected.

WONDER WHEN SHE STARTING HAVING THE BABIES? ALL THE SAME FATHER? MARRIED?

wow, she looks like she could be 30 years old...because that is a hard looking 19.  I know its a mug shot and everything but damn.  at 19 she already has 4 kids. so either she started having kids when she was 14 or she has been consistently pregnant for almost 4 years back to back. When you think about how many childless couples out there would LOVE to conceive even one child and then you see skanks like this who seem more like baby machines or vaginas with legs than mothers its almost hard to believe. And dad isn't fooling anyone..."I gave her milk and her eyes rolled back." my bullshit detector just sparked and blew up!

your baby was covered in bruises and you claim you don't know what happened? but there is a good half hour that isn't accounted for in your story? Or that you have no idea your wife has issues around taking care of those kids? C'mon! Get your story straight! He sounds about as bright as she does-and to those people defending her-the police don't arrest people for fun - they arrest people ONLY AFTER THEY HAVE CLEAR EVIDENCE OF A CRIME BEING COMMITTED. and a dead baby covered in bruises-along with two parents who claim they have "no idea" what happened is usually considered enough evidence that SOME crime has taken place.

YOU are so wrong... the father has asked you to help him pay for medical bills or food, or anything else?? they keep a fridge with nutritious food they buy for their children, is a safe home, clean home.. and if they want and can afford having kids, is their right to.. there is no crime in that. 

skatoolaki

It is not right to have children - that many of them - at that young an age.  And unless he is her age or younger, the father could be accused of statutory rape.  Sorry, this is not the perfect little family you make them out to be.  It's awesome the father works, awesome they support themselves, but anyone with sense will tell you that raising four children at a young age (the parents) in this economy is insanely stressful!  Perfect or not, either of them could easily have cracked under the pressure.

I suspect if she is 19, they don't pay their medical bills either. I suspect welfare does.

By the way, my sister was born with short bowel syndrome and it was only diagnosed after dozens of doctor's visits and overnights in a pediatric hospital. It seems to me that if SBS was the cause of death, there would be some specialist/doctor to back that up.

What I get is: all of you are judginga situation, you know nothing about,  youare strictly going by what the media said happened, based on what she has beencharged with.. She has not been found guilty and the reports and the autopsy donot show what happened.  So don’t judge.

The child died of a head injury, that is certain. One of these 2 killed her and police have reason to believe it was the mother. Even in the remote possibility it was the father, the mother knew and was culpable. Either way she is a skanky evil murdering bitch.

What other explanation is there for a 2 year old to have blunt force trauma and signs of abuse? Come on now...if someone can give me an alternate scenario then I'd like to hear it. A 19 year old is not mature enough to handle 4 kids without stressing out and my guess is she just couldn't handle it anymore and snapped.

I feel am not in America. As far as Iremember, in US YOU ARE innocent till proven guilty.  Is outrageous that this mother, who has notmorn the death of her child, has been summated to such lies. May God judge.  Look up to heaven for answers.

Have you ever noticed that only people who come here illegally think that "Americans" have ome sort of teflon super powers or something - where they have the right to do anything they please? Don't be surprised your friend is getting raked over the coals, press coverage of criminal cases is legal here, if you don't like that, go to England - it is illegal there.

It'd be nice to look up to heaven for strength - but as a grandma I look at those babies for everything else thats good. As a human I love to see the babies at the store, in their yards.  Their faces, their smiles, their firsts. This 'mother' took away from so many. She has no rights. Her child was abused and now is gone. She is guilty. I judge that. May God have mercy on her soul, if he deems it right. That poor poor baby.

She is innocent  but ourtax dollars will prove her guilty.  The truthis that paramedics and fire fighters where practicing on this little girl.  The 911 call that could have save her live,KILLED HER.  WHO would like students practicingon you when your life is in danger?  Ppl withoutany training are the ones who attended to this 911 call, and let this babydied, but sure, talk what you don’t know about and let an innocent woman die injail paying for what THEY did. Who will come forth in her defense? NOBODY, shehas been the target of their stupidity and they will lock her up no questionsasked, CUZ you all are helping them with your ignorance of the facts. 

Gaff in a   oh never mind
Gaff in a oh never mind

OK, who knows, you could be one of the guys who sexually abused this teen mom who is ALLEGED to have been involved in the death of her own child -- lots of commenters have been quite careless about using "alleged" --  so I'm taking all your "let God judge" with a grain of salt. But when you go insinuating about the paramedics and firefighters "practicing" on this little girl....?!?! Oh, boy--that's really uncalled for. They go out on God only knows what type of shit calls to pull people out of their own fuckups. So really, cut these folks some slack. We owe them a LOT.

Now go back to defending your alleged killers who no doubt were for real abused themselves, and were way too ignorant to use birth control before, after or during the fact.

And to think some good people are infertile!

The sad thing is this...

If you are a friend/family member and do truly know the truth of what happened, you are too inarticulate to get the message across. No offense, but straight up advice here. You write like you're using Babel Fish to translate your gibberish into some form of only halfway legible English. Hey, it isn't your fault. Education sucks in this country and not everyone can express themselves well in writing, but I say this for the following reasons:

Hire a good lawyer, someone to speak for you, and you might have a better chance of helping out the woman you believe is innocent.  If you can't at least spell out a decent argument, no one is going to believe you or pay you any heed.

Attacking random, anonymous people on the internet for having an opinion on the story - based only on what they've heard about it in the media - is pointless and, actually, unfair. If you have inside information, do something about it! Don't sit here and chide others for coming to a different conclusion than you knowing they don't have the information you have. That's just ignorant on your part.

Further, if you feel this strongly about it, why aren't you out *doing something* tangible about it?  Do you really think you're helping supposed-innocent mom by posting random tripe on a comment section from an article on the internet?  Really?

skatoolaki
skatoolaki

None of which accounts for the child dying by BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA TO HER HEAD.

Care to explain that one, Dr. Wikipedia?

skatoolaki
skatoolaki

And where do you get all of this "information"?  How do you know that every single paramedic and fire fighter on the scene were ALL in training and that not ONE of them was experienced.

That's a pretty big leap to make, don't you think?

you dont know shit apart from the story you have been fed. You have to udnerstand that time after time friends of these maniacs we read about come on and post here in their defense and time after time these people are convicted and proved to be liars. So forgive me if i dont instantly believe your version of events. As adarc says if you are an actual witness (you seen with your own eyes what happened) you would not be posting here you would be speaking with a lawyer instead of trying to convince the internet public of this womans innocence. Therefore i say that you are not an actual witness and just know these people somehow, which makes what you say unreliable at best.

adarc
adarc

If you are a witness ( as you claim) you should probably stop posting here, and talk instead to a lawyer. Remember "knowing what happened" is different from knowing what you were told happened.

adarc

Uh-huh - well that is likely.  It is very easy  to find out who was on duty that day and whether or not they were "qualified' to be there. If the family truly believes that is what happened they should file a suit of their own. Though I have never seen CPR performed that caused head trauma...

DEATH PENALTY WOULD BE BETTER!!  No excuse for a MOTHER to wait as long as she did to get help.  911 should have been called long before the husband came home.  Poor child, screw the beast of a women who did not care for her flesh, GOD will judge this in the end.

Imehon_fogle
Imehon_fogle

Again, you are going by what the media says. You don’t know, you don’t know, you don’t know.  Idiots talk about what they don’t know.  This is not to say that you are an idiot, butI do know what happened.  So I don’t needto guess or speculate. I know.

Short bowel syndrome - Definition

Short bowel syndrome is a malabsorption disorder caused by either the surgical removal of the small intestine or the loss of its absorptive function due to diseases.

In healthy adults, the small intestine has an average length of approximately 6 meters (20 feet). Short bowel syndrome usually appears when there is less than 1.8 meters (6 feet) of the small intestine left to absorb sufficient nutrients.

Contents [hide]1 Symptoms2 Causes3 Treatments4 Intestinal adaptation5 Prognosis6 External links

Symptoms

The symptoms of short bowel syndrome include:

Abdominal pain Diarrhoea Steatorrhoea or particularly foul-odored faeces Oily or sticky stool Fluid retention Weight loss and malnutrition Fatigue

Patients with short bowel syndrome may have complications caused by malabsorption of vitamins and minerals, such as deficiencies in vitamins A, E, D, and B12, calcium, magnesium, iron, folic acid, and zinc. These may appear as anaemia, scaling of the skin or hyperkeratosis, easy bruising, muscle spasms, and bone pain.
