911 call released; baby had skull fractures, kidney and liver trauma

Posted: Updated:
CHESTER, SC (WBTV) -

Investigators have released the 911 calls after an 11-month-old baby died while in the care of a man; a report states she had a skull fracture and trauma to her kidneys and liver.

According to the Chester County Sheriff's Office, 11-month-old Madison Stewart died at a hospital in Charlotte last week after she was critically injured.

Twenty-seven-year-old Jeffery Bradley, has been charged in her death.

Chester County Sheriff Investigators got a call last Wednesday in reference to an injured baby at this mobile home on Hardin Strait Road.

Stewart was taken to Levine's Children hospital in Charlotte with a serious head injury. She died two days later.

The police report says the baby had a skull fracture, brain hemorrhaging as well as liver and kidney trauma. It is still unclear how she recieved the injuries.

In a 911 call that was released on Tuesday, Bradley can be heard telling emergency crews that Madison was struggling to breathe.

"She's breathing every so often" he told the 911 dispatcher. "She has bubbly saliva coming out of her mouth. I'm trying to perform CPR on her. She's taking breaths every couple seconds. She has a heartbeat. She's not breathing as much as she needs to be."

Bradley told dispatchers that he thinks Madison got shocked by a charging cable that fell to the floor while he went to the bathroom. He said that she was unconscious when he came back.

"I don't have her in any clothes. Whenever all this started happening, I put her in the bathtub to see if I could shock her awake," Bradley told dispatchers. "That didn't work and I started seeing her lips turn blue and I knew she wasn't breathing. I'm sure they'll take care of her while I go do that but I need to put her in a diaper and some clothes."

Deputies charged Bradley with murder by child abuse. Bradley was denied bond on Saturday and remains behinds bars.

"I was in love with her from the very beginning," said Sherry Burnette-Taylor, Madison's grandmother.

Burnette-Taylor choked back tears as she remembered her late 11-month-old granddaughter.

"She had these big blue eyes that when she looked at you, she just stole your heart," said Burnette-Taylor.

Although the grief is still fresh, Burnette-Taylor says she forgives Bradley.

"No one is mad or angry with the family, so I don't know what happened with JT (Bradley). All I know is he took something from me, my daughter and our family that we can never get back," said Burnette-Taylor.

Stewart's funeral was held Tuesday afternoon in Rock Hill.
