Baby airlifted to Riley Hospital, man charged with child neglect



A 27-year-old Bloomington man was arrested Sunday for child neglect after a nearly 2-month-old baby girl was found to have bleeding in her brain, Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo said.

The baby was taken to the hospital Friday for “feeding issues” because she was not gaining weight, and her health continued to decline, Pedigo said. The doctors decided to do a CT scan on the baby, which revealed bleeding in her brain. The baby was then airlifted to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.

The baby’s parents were brought into the police station for questioning, and the father was arrested.

The baby is in serious but stable condition at Riley Hospital, Pedigo said.
