Abused CdA Baby Remains ‘Critical’


Many of you (in the media) have inquired as to the latest condition of the 20 day-old infant that was hospitalized on (Sunday). The child’s father James Dean Blanchard was arrested in connection with the child’s injury. We checked with medical staff within the last half an hour and were told the baby continues to deal with many medical problems such as seizures. He is in very critical condition. Our hopes and prayers are with this child. I will update you as information becomes available/Sgt. Christie Wood, Coeur d'Alene Police Department news release/Sgt Christie Wood, Coeur d'Alene Press news release.
