The six-month-old girl was admitted to Guillermo Rawson’s hospital pictured after a fatal injury when her stepfather threw her into the path of a ceiling fan while playing with her. Jesus Michel Zalazar, 26 – the girl’s stepfather – was arrested for murder
The fan hit the girl on the head and she was taken to Guillermo Rawson Hospital for urgent surgery.

The alleged murder reportedly occurred during a family reunion and many of the relatives turned to the stepfather. The little girl’s aunt described horrific scenes in which she felt the blow on the roof fan and the baby against the chest and bloody shirt of her stepfather
The case was initially investigated as a negligence case, but Judge Matias Parron, who is in charge of the investigation, has turned it into a murder case.
Aldana, the victim’s aunt, told the local media, ‘my sister [the mother of the baby girl] cooked and talked [him] that the meal was ready, then I started to set the table. Jesus had the baby and was playing around with her in the living room. Suddenly I felt a blow on the roof fan and when I looked at him, Jesus had her on his chest with a bloody shirt. ‘
“I told him what did you do? And we rushed out to ask a neighbor for help, to go to the hospital. He told me on the way to the hospital, I haven’t done anything, Aldana, I haven’t done anything. ‘
