After being taken to a medical center by his grandmother for head injuries and difficulty breathing, a two-month-old boy was airlifted to a children's medical center in Salt Lake City and placed on life support, according to The Spectrum online. The injuries sustained by the infant were consistent with shaken baby syndrome, and police arrested the infant's father on child abuse charges after conducting an initial investigation. The man was reportedly watching other children as well as the infant when the incident occurred and resulted in traumatic head injuries for the boy. Medical personnel reported to visitors that the prognosis for the child was not good, and it was not clear whether the child could survive on his own without life support.
