CORPUS CHRISTI - The father of a 4-month-old girl is now facing a charge of injury to a child after her death last week.

Early Friday, a 911 call came in about an unconscious infant at a home in the 2900 block of Niagara. The father, 17-year-old Joe Angel Rodriguez, told police he woke up to find the girl limp and cold.

She was rushed to Driscoll Children's Hospital, but did not survive.
