The Chaves County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a case of possible child abuse. A five-month-old girl was brought to a local hospital on Sept. 13, because of seizures. Preliminary examination also indicated internal injuries.
“The child was flown to Lubbock and later transferred to University of New Mexico Hospital. She had been flown out before we arrived,” said Lt. Britt Snyder. The case was referred to New Mexico Children, Youth and Family Department.
