When you leave your child with a babysitter, you surely want your little one to receive the best care possible. But there are many cases where babysitters act inappropriately with kids, abusing and beating them. It’s painful even to think about it, but such cases may end tragically.

This is the story of Hannah Wesche

Shortly after Hannah’s father dropped her off at babysitter Lindsay Partin’s house, 911 dispatcher received a call. Partin was crying, saying that the child passed out all of a sudden. She also revealed that the toddler fell pretty badly the day before, but she had been doing fine until she lost consciousness.

First responders rushed to Partin’s house where they found that the little girl was unresponsive, with obvious bruises about her face and head, and labored breathing. The three-year-old was taken to the hospital, where the personnel found bruising on her body.

Unfortunately, there’s very little hope. Hannah remains in critical condition; she is brain-dead and is on life support. Her devastated father says his daughter is not expected to survive. As he says:

Within the next couple of days, we’ve been told that it’s going to come to an end.

Partin admitted to striking the kid, but she has pleaded not guilty. By posting a $30 thousand bond, she was released from jail on bail, but she is to return to court for further hearings.

To all parents all over the world, talk to neighbors and get background checks before letting any babysitter watch your child!
