Colorado, November 28: In the United States, a 2-year-old child is struggling for his life following his alleged beating by a drunk babysitter in Colorado. The child named Giovanni Reichert has reportedly undergone many surgeries in past few months since his mother left him with McKinley Slone Hernandez, a 'trusted friend', on September 1 this year, according to the New York Post. In addition to many life-saving surgeries and the removal of a portion of his skull, what happened to the toddler remains unknown since the babysitter "won't admit to anything," according to his mother, Stephanie Reichert.
Stephanie stated, "All she's said is that she drinks, and he got hurt in her care," according to the site. I wish I knew, because I imagine scenarios in my head all the time for the injuries he sustained, she added.

A few hours after putting her kid in Hernandez's care, the mother claimed to have received a text message from her "saying I needed to rush to St. Anthony's Hospital because my son had gone lifeless after a bath". "I had to leave the room as soon as I saw him and the 50 doctors surrounding him because it was the worst thing I had ever seen in my life," Stephanie stated.
