GREENVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) - The 2-year-old Greenville girl who remains in critical condition as police investigate a possible child abuse did not get help right away for her injuries.
Two-year-old Brooklyn was on life support with a severe closed head injury as of Wednesday at Grand Rapids' Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. Emergency responders found her unresponsive but breathing Sunday evening .
According to court documents, Ben Wilkins -- boyfriend of Brooklyn's mother -- admitted that he made up stories at first because he did not want authorities to get involved.
Court documents show Wilkins called a Greenville hospital from his home on West Grove Street at 8:35 p.m. Sunday, claiming a friend had jumped off a roof and Wilkins wanted to know what to do.
When 911 dispatchers called Wilkins at 8:37 p.m., Wilkins said he and a friend had been wrestling and someone had been knocked unconscious.
It wasn't until 9:02 p.m. that Wilkins called 911 and asked for an ambulance. Wilkins and Brooklyn's mom told police the toddler had fallen off a bathroom sink she climbed on while in a time-out.
Willkins was arrested on obstructing justice and violating his parole and is lodged in the Montcalm County Jail. He has not been charged with causing Brooklyn's injuries.
Brooklyn's mom regained custody of the child in February after the toddler was injured in May 2012.
