The 5-month-old Goddard boy who was taken to a local hospital with a serious head injury early Wednesday morning is in stable condition today, authorities said.
"He was on a ventilator yesterday," said Sgt. Amy Osburn of the Exploited and Missing Child Unit, adding that she did not know if that was still the case today.
No arrests have been made, but the case remains under investigation, she said.
The child was taken to Via Christi Regional Medical Center-St. Francis Campus at about 1 a.m. Wednesday by his mother, police have said.
The 19-year-old woman said she fed her son and put him down to sleep. He awakened later and began vomiting, and then stopped breathing for a short time.
