The family of the Otahuhu baby who died of head injuries in Starship Children’s Hospital at the weekend were known to Child Youth and Family. The one-year-old died on Sunday despite frantic efforts to save him. Police are investigating the death and say the boy’s family are helping with their inquiries. Child Youth and Family northern regional director Grant Bennett said today they had dealt with the family in the past. “The family was previously known to Child Youth and Family but there was no current involvement [at the time of the death],” he said.
