Child suffers broken ribs in suspected case of child abuse

WICHITA, Kansas — A 1-month-old Wichita girl is in the hospital with broken ribs in a case of suspected child abuse.

Police were called Monday afternoon to Wesley Hospital.

Doctors said the injuries to the infant weren’t consistent with the story the parents had given that the baby was accidentally dropped on Sunday.

She is suffering from five broken ribs and is in the pediatric intensive care unit but is expected to recover.

Officers are investigating, and no arrests have been made.
