FOX6 News spoke with the paternal grandmother of the two-year-old boy, who said he is expected to be OK. She said on Tuesday he was showing great vital signs and was alert.

For that reason, loved ones were experiencing joy, while at the same time, immense sadness.

"Just an emotional wreck right now now. I'm just really heartbroken of over what happened," the grandmother said.

Too distraught to show her face on camera, two-year-old Jaycion's grandmother said she's torn apart by the actions of the child's mother.

"I think she really wanted to get back at my son. Not sure if my son and her were having issues. But she would say things to make him angry and it always involved the child," the grandmother said.

For some reason, police say the 21-year-old mother attempted to drown herself and the child in Lake Michigan on Monday.

The grandmother said the child's father received an alarming message a short while before the water rescue, and tried to prevent harm to anyone.

"She had informed him that she was about to kill herself and she was going to kill the baby. She a sent a picture to my son`s phone with a baby inside of a bag and so my son and I, we made a U-turn and went to the police immediately," the grandmother said.

But still, the mother was able to carry out her plan -- breaking the child's father's heart.

"He came out crying, saying 'Mom, she died. She died.' And he broke down. He said 'the baby is alive, but Mama, she died,'" the grandmother said.

The grandmother said the child's mother had deep issues -- contrary to the rumors of a troubled life.

"She was not homeless. Her family is actually very good people," the grandmother said.

This grandmother is now looking to her faith for understanding and strength.

"I'm really praying on my grandson, for a speedy recovery, and I just hope her family can get thorough this because we are all praying for her as well," the grandmother said.

It's unclear how long the child will have to stay at the hospital -- but family members said it is a miracle he survived, after he and his mother were both pulled from the water without a pulse and in cardiac arrest.

    Jess, have the been the most judgmental of anyone I have seen on these comments!!! How dare you!! I work for the State of WI and I would LOVE for YOU to enlighten ME, an LCSW whom writes grants for assistance programs and is more intimately aware of what is and is not available then you will ever be…please tell me of these abundant public assistance programs, shelters, churches and resources you speak of??!!! Because apparently, you have difference statistics then I deal with daily!! In WI, Gov. Walker has all but cut the social services sector budget by 3/4, has turned middle class families into the working poor, and made WI unavailable for most Federal block grants that are used to fund non-profits and programs that we don’t have, yet according to you….is available in abundance. At any given time, over 250+ women, children and infants are turned away from shelters & church programs in SE WI due to lack of avail beds, funds and resources. I desperately need you to shut the fuck up about what you don’t know and can only pray you don’t one day find yourself on the wrong end of mental illness and hopelessness! You’re sad and pathetic and the very reason the mental health community lives with a very unfortunate stigma. Educate yourself and silence yourself…..heartless and shameful…..you’re disgusting!!
