LAYTON, Utah (AP) - A Layton woman and her boyfriend were arrested on suspicion of child abuse after they took her 2-year-old child to the hospital in critical condition.

Police say 23-year-old Jasmine Bridgeman and 34-year-old Joshua Schoenenberger were booked Saturday into the Davis County Jail on felony and misdemeanor child abuse charges.

Police responded to Davis Hospital shortly after midnight Friday after the two took the child there.

Investigators say the child was having difficulty breathing and suffered injuries consistent with ongoing physical abuse.

The child then was flown to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City and underwent surgery for internal injuries. The child remains there in critical condition.

The case is under investigation.
