JSCO investigating injury to a child

Posted: Updated:

A six-month-old baby is recovering in Memorial Hermann Baptist Hospital while investigators look into possible child abuse.
The infant is suffering from a skull fracture according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies learned of the child's injuries around 5 p.m. Sunday. 

That's when deputies say the infant was taken to the Baptist emergency room. Deputies say the 6-month-old was taken by a parent. 

After a doctor examined the child the hospital alerted authorities.   

Sheriff's deputies say it looks like the baby's injuries are not life threatening.

Deputies say the family is from the Turner Addition in China and is cooperating with investigators.
