Police are still investigating a reported fall that left a 9-month-old baby in critical condition late Saturday.

The infant, identified as Sabriyah Davis, was not breathing when ambulance and fire crews arrived at her parents' Centre Court apartment at 9:46 p.m. Saturday. She was taken to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center and later transferred to Children's Hospital in Buffalo.

Officials there listed her in critical condition Sunday evening. Police said the girl had stomach and liver injuries in addition to brain damage, but doctors could not immediately pinpoint the source of the injuries.

Detectives Carl Berak and William Smith said that the infant's mother called 911 when the baby began gasping for air and turning blue after reportedly falling face-first while attempting to walk across the floor.

Police originally notified Child Protective workers when one of the officers responding to the call of a baby not breathing noticed the infant had what he termed "the worst case of diaper rash" he had ever seen.

The brain damage could be attributed to lack of oxygen, doctors told detectives. Lt. John Soltys said Sunday that police are still looking into the incident and that no charges have been filed.
