FORT MOHAVE, Ariz. (AP) - Mohave County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating the death of an infant boy.

Deputies responded to a child abuse report Tuesday night at the Valley View Medical Center in Fort Mohave.

The medical staff advised that a 15-month-old boy suffered head injuries.

The child’s mother rushed the baby to the hospital when she realized he was having difficulty breathing after she returned home in Fort Mohave from working all day.

Authorities say the infant had been in the care of the mother’s boyfriend the entire day.

The child was later airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital and died on Thursday.

Authorities say no arrests have been made and the investigation remains active.

They say autopsy results are pending.
