Million Dollar Bail For Westfield Dad

posted by John Baibak - 

A Westfield man is facing charges for  allegedly beating his infant child. 

Authorities say the  eight-month-old daughter of Daniel Torres was slapped so hard that she  stopped breathing and is now on life support.  

Torres was arraigned in  Westfield District Court on assault and reckless endangerment charges on  Monday and is being held on one-million-dollars bail.  

He reportedly  told police he slapped her while playing with her on the floor in a fit  of frustration, but that he didn't mean to hurt her.

Torres will be back in court August 28th.
