LAYTON, Utah — A 23-year-old mother and her boyfriend were taken into custody Saturday on suspicion of child abuse of the woman’s 2-year-old child, James Sieger Jr.

Layton police were called to Davis Hospital at about 12:51 a.m. after Jasmine Bridgeman, 23, and her boyfriend, 34-year-old Joshua Schoenenberger, brought the toddler into the hospital.

The child was having difficulty breathing and had injuries consistent with ongoing physical abuse as well as recent traumatic injuries, according to a press release from Layton police.

The child was flown to Primary Children’s Hospital and underwent surgery for internal injuries, the release indicated.

Bridgeman and Schoenenberger were booked into the Davis County Jail on charges of child abuse, a second-degree felony and child abuse, a class A misdemeanor.

The case is currently under investigation.

    1. Alan, you might not want to read the follow-up I just read.
      Brother, I wish I could see you now…. that Baby Boy was being potty trained.

      1. Wyatt, I know, I was telling agodfoundation earlier almost the samething, except I added that I HAD to post the final story of this Child’s life on earth.
        But then Allen, I was just a bit ago telling these same friends of being discouraged, and just at the perfect moment, you look around, and there sits “The Perfect Blessing”….
        Thank You Wyatt, I appreciate you.
