    How sad for that little baby girl. I will reserve judgement until more facts are known.

    Well, children don't hurt themselves!

      Sure they do. The parents or guardians are responsible for preventing it, but unattended children can certainly hurt or even kill themselves. That's reality.

    He wasnt the dad & he still took care of her & love her as if he was his own!!!

    Children dont hurt themselves.. Really you must not have boys..

    Any updates if this baby lived?

    No facts are needed! Babies do not hurt themselves and the chances a 7 month old hurt herself are slim. I hope and pray it was an accident.. Because the alternate is probably 7 months of on and off abuse. Bless her. :(

    Let me rephrase….children don't cause their own deaths….to a point that they need to be investigated, especially at 7 mo. old. I'm NOT talking about "accidents" and you know it. Seriously you ALL can't be that dumb. Children don't beat, drop, shake, slap, kick themselves. Don't play coy. Way too many children die to due "accidents". Time to wise up and be smart where and who you put your children with.

    She died.
