A baby is still fighting for her life in a Sydney hospital, after she allegedly fell from a cot.

Investigations began yesterday after the 11-month-old was found unresponsive in the home, just before 8:50pm on Sunday night.

The 11-month-old baby girl was airlifted to hospital in a critical condition after she was found seriously injured and unresponsive in a house in the NSW Central Tablelands overnight.

The discovery was made in Lithgow just before 9pm. Police said they were called to a home on Landa Street around 8.50pm where they found the 11-month-old girl unresponsive.

The infant was treated at the scene by paramedics before being rushed to Lithgow Hospital with serious injuries.

Detectives attended the house and established a crime scene which was examined by forensic police.

Investigators are now working to determine how the girl sustained her injuries.

Police were told the girl fell from the cot.

Detectives from the Child Abuse Squad have been brought in to investigate the case.

The 11-month-old had been living in the Lithgow home with her carer, reportedly her aunt. However the woman was not at home when the incident occurred and her male partner was the one who called emergency services.

Police say the pair is co-operating with authorities and no charges have been laid

Anyone with information is urged to contact police via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000

More details to come.

  • I hope bub is ok and if something else did happen that the police get to the bottom of it!


  • I bit suss to have such shocking injuries from a ‘fall’ out of a cot. I don’t doubt the possibility of this baby bring able to climb out of her cot, but such injuries from falling……I don’t think so. Something’s not adding up


  • I wonder if the baby had been walking around in her cot and may have tried to climb out. We were minding friends’ baby not much older than her one night. He managed to climb out out and came walking out to us. He didn’t need a nappy change or a bottle. We kept putting him back and he climbed out again. He was tall for his age and managed it even with high sides. We discovered he was walking up the rails. The last time we gave him the spare dummy we know was hidden, put him back in his cot and he was asleep within 10 minutes. We told his parents what we had done and they said they didn’t blame us. Better than him hurting himself. Apparently he didn’t ask for the dummy after that.


  • Little one! I hope she will recover completely!!
