Police investigating 4-month-old suffering brain injury

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Detectives are investigating the case of a 4-month-old baby who suffered a brain injury.

Police reports say a man rushed to a Cambridge Avenue home after he received text messages from his baby's mother which said she could not handle the baby's crying.

The man found his infant son and the baby's mother both passed out on the floor.

The infant's father noticed the baby was having trouble breathing and called an ambulance.

The child was diagnosed as suffering from respiratory failure and cerebral edema and transferred to Akron Children's Hospital Main Campus.

A hospital social worker told police that the father was concerned that the mother could have either caused the injury or was negligent with the care of the child.

According to a report, when the mother arrived at the hospital, the social worker said she appeared to be under the influence and could not grasp the severity of the situation.

The mother said she placed her son in an unsecured car seat while she was taking a shower and when she came out he was on the floor.

Children Services was advised of the situation.

No one has been charged.
