A two-month-old ba­by is fight­ing for his life at the San Fer­nan­do Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal af­ter he fell over a ban­nis­ter at his par­ent's home in Point Fortin on New Year’s Day.

The ba­by is said to be rest­ing in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion at the In­ten­sive Care Unit of the hos­pi­tal.

Po­lice have ques­tioned the moth­er and oth­er fam­i­ly mem­bers. The mat­ter is be­ing in­ves­ti­gat­ed as an ac­ci­dent.
