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
