Missouri baby hospitalized with fractured skull and super glued mouth

Authorities in Arkansas and Missouri are investigating after a 3-month-old child was hospitalized with severe injuries.

A Blytheville, Arkansas, police report says an officer responded to an abuse call on Monday and found the child from Kennett, Missouri, suffering from severe injuries, including having super glue around his mouth.

The child was flown from a Blytheville hospital to a hospital in Memphis.

The report says the child had a fractured skull, several broken ribs and what appeared to be super glue around his mouth.

WREG-TV reports the person who called police said a juvenile was watching the baby in Kennett and she took the child to the hospital after seeing his condition.

When contacted by Blytheville police, the mother said she would go to the hospital but never arrived.
