A nine week old infant was airlifted to Miami Children’s Hospital with head injuries. Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Women and Children’s Unit are investigating.
The child, whose identity cannot be released due to the nature of the investigation, is currently reported to be in serious but stable condition. Florida law prohibits the release of the identity of a victim of possible child abuse.
He was brought to Mariner’s Hospital in the early morning hours today by his parents. Besides a head injury, detectives say he also had scratches and some bruising. Both parents say they do not know how the injuries occurred.
The father, who is 22 years old, lives in the Marathon area. The mother, who is 21 years old, lives in Key West.
Investigations are continuing.
