OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police have filed a suspicion of child abuse complaint against a man who told officers his 2-year-old son had been kicked in the head by a horse.
Wilbert Bradford called 911 Thursday evening and said the boy had slipped out the back door and apparently scared the horse, which kicked him twice.
The boy was flown to OU Medical Center, where doctors said his head injuries did not appear life threatening. He was still hospitalized on Monday.
Bradford was booked into the county jail.
According to a police report, doctors found bruises on his head, face, neck, back, chest, arms, legs and buttocks - more than they believed could have been caused by the horse.
Police said the sister showed no signs of abuse.
