A 12-day-old baby is in critical but stable condition after suffering head injuries from a fall to the ground.
Police said on Saturday morning that the infant fell as one of the two parents was trying to hand the young boy over to the other in a parking lot.
The infant was initially treated at Paphos general hospital but was soon taken by ambulance to the Makarios children’s hospital in Nicosia due to the severity of the incident.
Paphos police spokesman Michalis Nikolaou said doctors will be able to provide a further update once 24 hours have passed and the course of recovery is clearer.
He added that the parents have been by the bedside of their young child throughout the ordeal.
