Baby In Critical Condition After Falling From Parking Structure

ORANGE (CBS) — An infant fell at least two stories from a parking structure and is in critical condition after landing on a concrete walkway in Orange County Monday night.

An eyewitness reportedly saw the baby fall from the parking structure, belonging to the Childrens Hospital of Orange County at 6:20 p.m., Sgt. Dan Adams of the Orange Police Department said.

Adams said the circumstances were “suspicious” considering the baby couldn’t have gotten over the ledge by itself.

The infant, estimated to be one month old, was taken from Childrens Hospital to UC Irvine Medical Center because of its renowned trauma center. The baby was listed in critical condition.

Police were looking for a person who might have had to do with the fall.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance video from the nearby hospital and the parking structure for information that will lead to a suspect or identify the baby.
