It's happened again.

Another baby has died of suspected abuse.

Details of who and how are suppressed but what we do know is that this baby was seen by three different doctors and although the little boy was referred to Oranga Tamariki and the police child protection team he still died.

The 16-month-old was taken to hospital by his mother because she noticed he wasn't using his leg. X-rays showed no sign of injury so it wasn't until a third hospital visit that an MR scan revealed he had a spiral fracture in his tibia.
