COHOES – A seven month old baby is being treated for broken ribs at Albany Medical Center.
Police say it was his father who caused the injury.
Christopher Barnes, 26, is accused of squeezing the baby’s chest because he wouldn’t stop crying.
Someone noticed the baby looked underweight and tipped off Child Protective Services.
An X-ray led to the discovery of the broken ribs.
Barnes was sent to jail on $25,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
