Police on Thursday arrested a North Texas man for allegedly injuring a baby inside a Fort Worth hospital in March. According to Fort Worth police, 21-year-old Travis Dwyane McNabb was alone with the infant, who had been hospitalized at Cook Children's Hospital for bronchitis. A hospital worker allegedly witnessed McNabb forcefully pressing his hand over the baby's face, police said. The witness said the baby began coughing and crying when McNabb moved away from her. The infant was put on a ventilator and tests later revealed that she was suffering from broken ribs, injuries that were not present when she was admitted, according to investigators. The child's mother was outside smoking during the alleged incident, police said.
