A babysitter in the north was suspected Tuesday evening of abusing her charge, a four-month-old baby girl. The baby's mother discovered signs of violence on her daughter and took her to Tiberias' Poriyya Hospital, where she was x-rayed and found to be in serious condition. The baby was then transported to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, which has better trauma and neurology facilities than does Poriyya. The babysitter was arrested under suspicion that she caused the baby's severe wounds. In the initial investigation, the babysitter said that her son, who was present together with her and the baby in the apartment, threw a sharp object, which struck the baby's head.
