A 7-week-old baby was found to have injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome (abusive head trauma) after she was taken to a Wichita hospital with head trauma, according to The Wichita Eagle online. The young girl was taken to the medical center on September 16, and her mother and father, ages 21 and 26, respectively, were arrested on suspicion of shaking the infant. As her parents face charges of child abuse, the child is in protective custody, according to police.
