Detectives have launched an investigation after an eight-month-old baby suffered critical injuries at a Queensland home in May.
The baby boy was transported from a home on Wilson Street in New Auckland, a suburb on the outskirts of Gladstone, to Gladstone Hospital on May 30 after he was located non-responsive by emergency services.
Due to the severity of his injuries, understood to be to his head, the boy was flown to Queensland Children’s Hospital where he has since undergone multiple surgeries and remains being treated.
Detectives from the Child Trauma Unit and Gladstone Child Protection Investigation Unit are piecing together a timeline of events and are seeking public assistance to fully understand the circumstances leading up to the boy’s hospitalisation.
In particular, investigators would like to speak with anyone that has had contact with the family and the child over the course of his life or any knowledge which may assist in the investigation
