Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - Police traveled to Akron today to find out why a 3-month old baby was so severely injured, he was placed in an intensive care unit.

The police want to talk to the medical staff attending the child and the baby's parents.

The baby was taken to a local hospital on Saturday, unconscious and not breathing. He was given CPR and put on a breathing tube then life-flighted to Akron Children's Hospital where he was placed in ICU.

The child's father told police the baby fell off the couch and landed on the floor.

During a CAT scan, nine bilateral rib fractures were discovered along with multiple brain bleeds which, according to the hospital appear to be from previous injuries.

The police report does not accuse the father or any particular person as causing the child's injuries.
