In Nebraska, Baby boy's injuries include broken ribs | Shaken Baby Syndrome

Omaha police are reportedly investigating the parents of an Omaha infant recently hospitalized with three fractured ribs and injuries to his head and body.
Hospital officials reportedly said the abuse was consistent with shaken baby syndrome.
No criminal charges have reportedly been filed against the baby boy's parents, but he and his siblings — ages 1- and 7-years-old — were removed from their custody.
A Douglas County Juvenile Court judge will determine this morning whether the children will remain in foster care.
The 1-month-old boy was reportedly taken by ambulance from home to Children's Hospital & Medical Center about 4:15 p.m. on May 22 because he was choking, according to court documents.
While being treated, doctors reportedly discovered the extent of the infant's injuries: fractures to three ribs, bilateral bleeding in the head, retinal hemorrhages and potential fractures to his knee.
Hospital officials said the baby has since been released.
