(While his father sits in Franklin County Jail awaiting a hearing on assault charges, a 7-month-old boy is being treated for a brain injury as a result of a severe shaking last week.

A preliminary hearing for Jose Luis Tejada, 24, was postponed Tuesday in Franklin County Central Court.

Tejada is accused of seriously injuring his infant son when he became frustrated with the child's prolonged crying and shook the boy violently while baby-sitting the afternoon of April 8.

Police allege in court documents that Tejada was caring for his son and 3-year-old daughter while his wife worked and became frustrated when he could not get the baby to stop crying.

He picked the baby up, and shook him violently a number of times, according to court documents. Police said Tejada told them the baby quit crying and fell asleep shortly after the shaking, but he later noticed that the little boy was unresponsive.

He called his wife at work, and the couple took the baby to the Chambersburg Hospital emergency room, where doctors determined he was suffering from severe trauma to the head or brain.

The baby was airlifted to Hershey Medical Center, where he was still listed in critical condition on Wednesday.

Investigators said Tejada is in the U.S. legally.

To date, the only charge filed against Tejada is aggravated assault, a first degree felony. He is in Franklin County Jail, where he is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.)

DO WE NOT HAVE A FAMILY TO CALL FOR HELP - WHEN YOU ARE FRUSTRATED?? AND HE HAS NOT BEEN CHARGES AS OF YET; PLEASE!!! WHERE IS THE LAW IN THIS COUNTY??? THIS BABY IS LAYING THERE IN THAT HOSPITAL AND HAD NO CHANCE AT LIFE WITH A PARENT LIKE HIM! I PRAY TO GOD THEY FRY HIM!!
