Medical Condition Mistaken for Child Abuse
Lesly and Chanon took their baby boy, Myles, to the pediatrician after they noticed that his fontanel was bulging and he had bruises on his face. Doctors found he had a posterior rib fracture and two wrist fractures. “My husband and I did not have an answer as to how he got these three fractures. That’s when the physicians decided, well, it must be child abuse,” Chanon says. The couple shares their story.
