On Tuesday, police and paramedics were called to the Budget Inn on East Vine Street in Kissimmee, after Juan Pablo Maradiaga, 41, reportedly threw his girlfriend's 2-year-old son off of a second-story balcony.

When police arrived, they discovered the child, along with Maradiaga, lying inured in the parking lot, according to court documents.

Apparently, Maradiaga jumped shortly after tossing the child to the pavement.

WKMG reported:

The child's mother [Rosa Fabian-Lizardo] told police she normally takes the child to a babysitter but Maradiaga had asked to spend time with him so she allowed him to babysit.

She said she later got a call at work from Maradiaga telling her he was frustrated and she needed to come and get the child but she told him she could not leave work. Police said 30 minutes later Maradiaga tossed the child over the balcony.

Maradiaga has a history of abusing Fabian-Lizardo, though she has always refused to press charges against her boyfriend.

Both Maradiaga and the child were taken to the hospital, though Maradiaga's injuries were not life-threatening.

The little boy remains in critical condition at Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando.

Maradiaga has been charged with attempted murder, and is currently being held at the Orange County Jail on an immigration detainer.

Despite the fact that her child was nearly killed, Fabian-Lizardo told reporters, she is not certain whether or not she will press charges against Maradiaga.
