A woman has been arrested on suspicion of assault after a baby fought for her life at a daycare center.
The seven-month-old girl was taken to hospital after an incident in the Manchester area last week.
She became “critically ill” at Kids Around The Clock nursery in the town of Oldham.
Paramedics were called to Main Road Nursery at 3.45pm on September 21 after receiving reports of an injured baby.
Police say the child was taken to hospital “where he is in a serious but thankfully stable condition.”
A woman in her 30s was arrested on suspicion of assault and child abuse.
She was interrogated by the police and released on bail “under strict conditions”.
Investigators, supported by the local authority and Ofsted, are working to uncover what happened.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “The child’s parents will be kept informed and will be supported by our investigative team at this worrying time.
“Extensive investigations continue to be carried out to determine the circumstances under which the child’s condition deteriorated.
“We currently believe this to be an isolated incident and detectives from our Oldham Child Protection Unit are working closely with all necessary partners as part of this ongoing investigation.
“Criminal proceedings are active and we urge people to refrain from speculation and comment online.”
