A baby boy was in critical condition Tuesday night at an Oxnard hospital after his stepfather dropped him on his head earlier in the day, police reported.
Paramedics found 21-month-old Angel Frias unconscious when they arrived at the family home in the 1700 block of Gisler Avenue in Oxnard. He was immediately taken to St. John’s Regional Medical Center, where he was being treated for serious head injuries.
