Every parent’s greatest fear is tragedy hitting their baby. What’s worse, is when such tragedy is carried out by someone that they knew and trusted and thought was safe to be around their child.
A Mexican man, Jose David N., has been sentenced to 100 years in prison for repeatedly throwing his 3 year old step daughter into a hotel pool. The little girl could not swim, and David N. knew it, yet he repeatedly threw her into the pool while her mother was in their hotel room sleeping.
CCTV cams from the hotel show the little girl struggling repeatedly, only to be thrown back into the pool when she did finally make her way to safety. Even after she got out of the pool and fully dressed, David N. threw her in again. The camera footage shows him walking off for some time after that, returning later only to recover her lifeless body after she’d drown.
The girl’s mother awoke later to find her daughter slumped over, lifeless, in front of the television. David N., of course, acted as shocked as the mother. However, the CCTV footage revealed the truth, and David N., who did not testify in his own defense, was convicted of murder and sentenced to 100 years in prison.
This incident took place in the city of Morelia, in the Southwestern Mexican state of Michoacan.
