After his death in August last year, the toddler was found to have eight fractured ribs and a broken back that left him a paraplegic. It is thought the back injury was caused when he was swung against his cot.
His fingernails and tips of fingers had been torn off, some deliberately, and he had been hit so hard in the face, probably on the night he died, that one of his teeth was found in his stomach.
The baby had been taken to the hospital or his doctor over a dozen times with multiple bruising and swelling to his face, blood coming from his ears and infected fingernails. He was admitted to hospital or examined by doctors over a dozen times with various different injuries. Many of them were inflicted while he was on the %u2018at risk%u2019 register with Haringey Social Services in north London.
During one examination, shortly before he died in August last year, a doctor failed to find he had a broken back and was a paraplegic. She said she could not examine him as he was %u201Ccranky%u201D.
