Wichita police investigating 3-month-old boy’s injuries

Police are investigating how a 3-month-old boy suffered severe injuries at his home in west Wichita on Tuesday.

The child was brought to Wesley Medical Center late Tuesday afternoon by his mother, who said he became unresponsive during a bath, a police document said. The boy had severe injuries which were not consistent with the explanations offered by the parents, police said.

The child has been placed in protective custody by police and is in critical condition, said Lt. Jeff Weible of the Exploited and Missing Child Unit. Doctors are still assessing the severity of the injuries.

No arrests have been made in the case.
