Toddler Who Was Injured And Intoxicated, Released From Hospital

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A 3-year-old girl who had become intoxicated with alcohol has been released from a Cincinnati hospital.

The girl was admitted to the hospital last month with two fractures to her left arm and bleeding on the brain. Her blood-alcohol level was 0.15, nearly twice the legal limit for motorists in Kentucky.

She is being cared for by relatives along with her 4-year-old sibling, who was not hurt.

Police in Covington and Elsmere are investigating. Authorities say suspects include four adults who had access to the child during the 12 hours before she was admitted to the hospital.

There have been no arrests.
