A brain injury can happen to anyone, young or old. In Nebraska this week, it appears that a couple might have caused brain injury in a toddler.
A Hershey, Nebraska couple have been arrested on charges of child abuse after bringing a toddler to the Great Plains Regional Medical Center with severe head injuries. Investigation showed the toddler had been struck in the head multiple times, causing severe swelling and possible brain damage.
The male half of the couple later admitted to punching the child in the head with his fist two days prior to bringing him in to the emergency room.
It is phenomenal that people could do something so terrible to a child. If the toddler does have brain damage, he could suffer from its effects for the rest of his life.
