“We do have an investigation underway involving a child under one and a daycare in Langford,” said Const. Nancy Saggar. “We can’t confirm at this time whether the injury took place at the daycare. That is what we are trying to determine. This type of investigation is quite involved.”

The child is still in Vancouver receiving care at BC Children’s Hospital under the watch of neurologists.
