OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: On Monday, October 4th, 2010 at approximately 4:30 P.M. Post Falls Officers responded to the 500 block of North Elm Road for a report of a 3 year-old male child who was breathing but unresponsive. When officers arrived on scene, they were told by the babysitter that she was attempting to remove urine soaked clothes from the 3 year-old when he became "limp" and unresponsive.

Medical personnel arrived on scene and transported the child to Kootenai Medical  Center in Coeur d' Alene. Initially, it was believed that the child might have ingested something that caused him to slip into his unresponsive state. Officers were later advised that a C.T. scan revealed that the child had a bleeding skull  fracture. 

Medical personnel felt that the injury was suspicious in nature. The  child was flown to Sacred Heart Medical Center, in Spokane where the child immediately underwent emergency surgery for his injuries.

Detectives responded and as a result of the investigation, the 25 year-old babysitter admitted to becoming frustrated and angry with the child after he had urinated himself.

The babysitter advised that she shoved the child to the ground resulting in the  injuries to his head. Charges are pending in this case. The child is currently in critical condition and the case is still actively under investigation by the Post Falls Police Department.
