Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Three-month-old Tyler twins have been released from a Dallas hospital after suffering broken ribs in what Child Protective Services thinks stems from child abuse.
Don Martin with the Tyler Police Department, tells KETK, CPS notified the police of the possibility of child abuse after the twins were taken to Children's Hospital in Dallas for treatment.
"We are very early in the investigation, but it may be considered a child abuse case," Martin said.
Martin tells KETK reports state the children were taken to the Dallas hospital at the request of their local doctor.
The twins and a one-year-old are now with other family members and the parents are not allowed visitation unless supervised.
The full injury report has not been released but KETK will update information as it becomes available.
