An Alabama toddler was on life support Thursday and his mother and stepfather charged with brutally abusing the child.

Attalla Police Chief Dennis Walker told local media that abuse was unimaginable.

“In the 26 years I’ve been here, it’s probably the worst child abuse case we’ve had,” Walker said.

Police arrested 27-year-old Maria Francisco Huang, the toddler’s mother, and Jose Morales-Calvo, 28, reported her husband.

Both face aggravated child abuse charges and were being held on $250,000 bond.

Police were called after the mother brought the child to the hospital.

Police report two other children, a 2-year-old and a newborn, were taken from Huang’s custody and appeared unharmed.
