CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The mother of a three-year-old boy who was taken to MetroHealth earlier this week appeared in court Friday. 

Carla Rivera and her boyfriend, Jorge Rosario-Collazo, are charged with assault and child endangerment. 

Bond for each was set at $500,000. 

Tuesday Rivera's son was rushed to the hospital with severe physical trauma. He was unresponsive and is currently on life-support. 

Police arrested Rivera and Rosario-Collazo shortly after. 

Reporter Ed Gallek revealed earlier this week that child welfare workers have been involved with the family in the past.
