Kissimmee, FL (AP) - Authorities say a central Florida man was
arrested after his girlfriend's infant son was hospitalized with
severe injuries.

Authorities say the infant is on life support. The 10-month-old
boy was gasping for air and was then unresponsive before
authorities arrived. He was hospitalized with injuries including
possible brain damage and fractured ribs.

The child's mother says he was sick for several days and took
him to a doctor for antibiotics. Authorities say she told then she
didn't abuse the boy.

The boyfriend also told authorities that he didn't abuse the
child, but they say he told them he may have used excessive force.
