          After hearing her explanation, her mom, Tina, and Tina’s cousin Colleen took her to the hospital, claiming they were petrified she could seriously harm her 1-year-old brother.

          “When we got to the hospital, my daughter admitted to the doctors that she tried smothering her brother, so they 5150ed her,” Tina claims. “I decided to go to the police and they told me to leave in her in the hospital, because if she came home and she hurt my son again, then I would be responsible and both of my children would be taken from me. Because I didn’t pick my daughter up from the hospital, I have allegations against me stating abandonment as well as failure to protect my child.”
