Toddler Continues to Recover from Severe Brain Injury


(KULR-8) – It’s a story we first brought you back in May, a Carbon County man is accused of assaulting a 9-month-old child causing potentially life threatening injuries. Court documents state the incidents allegedly occurred April 17th and 19th.

The court documents state the child’s mother went to stay with Polakoff in Red Lodge on April 17th. Documents state Polakoff went to check on the child after reportedly hearing gurgling.

The mother says she heard a thump, followed by Polakoff saying the child had thrown up. Polakoff allegedly said the child rolled off a futon.

Court documents state two days later, the child continued to vomit. The documents state Polakoff brought the baby into a bathroom to clean him up and called out he had stopped breathing. CONTINUE
