A 5-month-old infant is on life support at Lurie Children's Hospital Sunday evening.

Prosecutors say her father tried to smother her for crying Thursday, according to reports.

Parents Angela Petrov, 21, and Rodrigo Rodriguez, 29, both of the 2500 block of W. Fitch Ave., were each charged with aggravated battery to a child.

"It's really sad to hear about it. You just hope the child recovers and the parents get the help they need basically," neighbor Daniel Spivak said.
