After being beaten by her babysitter, Hannah Wesche was pronounced brain dead and is on life support.

On March 8, 2018, Hannah’s father, Jason, took his 3-year-old daughter to her babysitter’s house at 7 a.m., just as he used to do. A couple of minutes later, Lindsay Partin, 35, called 911 to report that the girl was unconscious.

People reported that during the call, which lasted 13 minutes, she told the operator that Hannah passed out ‘all of a sudden.’ After that, she pointed out that she had fallen pretty badly the day before but that she was fine already.

The call also showed that Partin seemed to be worried about Hannah as she was telling how much she loved her and that she was going to be okay.

As soon as Jason learned what happened to his daughter, he immediately got back to Partin’s house. Still on the phone, his voice could be heard telling Hannah to look up and breathe ‘for daddy.’

When the police and EMTs arrived at the scene, located on Shank Road, they noticed that she was unresponsive, had trouble breathing, and had several bruises on her body, head, and face.

She was immediately put on life support and, after running some tests, doctors pronounced her brain dead. Jason revealed that they don’t expect her to live much longer.

When asked, Partin held her version that claimed Hannah had fallen the day before and hit her head on the concrete floor of her garage. After interviewing her again, she confessed to striking the toddler.

Partin was arrested and charged with assault and child endangerment but, if Hannah dies, those charges are very likely to change. At the moment, a $30,000 bond is keeping her away from the Butler County Jail.

She is scheduled to return to court on March 15. The details of the incident have not been released yet and it is unclear if Partin retained an attorney already.
