A 36-year-old man is in jail on suspicion of abusing a 2-year-old child. Wichita Police say the child's 21-year-old mother brought him to the hospital.

The mother says she came home from work late Tuesday and found her boyfriend performing CPR on the boy.

Doctors found a two-inch octopus, which was used for sushi, lodged in the boy's throat. Doctors also found evidence of potential abuse.

The boyfriend was booked into jail.

The boy is hospitalized in serious condition.
