FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A Dillon woman has been arrested after Florence Police were called about a child admitted to a local hospital with trauma to the head.

Thu Tran, 43, was arrested and charged with abuse/to inflict great bodily injury upon a child, confirmed Major Carlos Raines with the Florence Police Department.

Last Friday, the FPD got a call from a local hospital about a child with injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome, Major Raines said. The child had to undergo surgery for those symptoms.

Raines said Tran looked after the child at a home on Second Loop Road. Tran called the child's father and said the baby was unresponsive, and the father then called a local hospital.

Tran was arrested and booked into jail by Florence Police on August 18. She was released the next day.
