NSW man charged after child hospitalised

A man has been arrested in NSW after a toddler was taken to intensive care with injuries to his head and body.

The 32-year-old man was charged on Thursday with causing reckless grievous bodily harm to the infant, a month to the day after the seven-month-old boy was brought to Wyong Hospital with injuries to his head and body.

After a stay at the Intensive Care Unit of the Sydney Children's Hospital, the boy has since been transferred to another hospital where he is still undergoing treatment for his injuries.

The man has been been refused bail to appear in Wyong Local Court on Friday.
