This story has me totally freaked out. A grandmother suddenly picked up her 2 year old granddaughter and threw her over a 5th story walkway railing at a mall. The child died. The mother and grandfather were there, and there was no warning at all? WTF?

Very strange and tragic. Poor baby. The grand mother at very least needs mental help.

This was in my area, so we heard about it on the local news the night it happened. A horrible, horrible thing. :wuzrobbed And completely out of the blue, it sounds like. The article says the woman had battled depression, so I wonder if she was either off her meds or on the wrong meds. (A cousin of mine got violent when he was put on the wrong meds, and didn't settle down until they changed his prescription.)

Disturbing to say the least. I hope it comes out that she was off her meds. While it won't bring the little girl back, at least it will provide some sort of explanation. It's scary to think that someone could just snap like that with no apparent explanation.

And I worked in that mall until recently. The crowds there drive me insane, but... :(

When another report mentioned medication, it reminded me of broadcaster Jane Pauley's admission of out of the blue needing psychiatric help.

Dela Rosa is due back in court on Jan. 4.

Neighbors say she often took care of her granddaughter. They describe her as a loving caregiver.

She was recently rushed to the hospital because she was sick.

And if she is not a U.S. citizen, she could face an immigration court as well as a criminal court. http://www.justice.gov/eoir/
