Octopus found lodged in boy’s throat; mother’s boyfriend arrested

A 36-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of baby abuse after Wichita doctors found a tiny octopus stuck in the throat of his girlfriend’s young son.

A 21-year-old woman returned residence from work at about 9:30 p. m. Tuesday to discover her boyfriend performing CPR on her two-year-old son at their residence in the four thousand nine hundred obstruct of E Waterman, Wichita police Lt. James Espinoza said Wednesday.

The couple took the boy to the hospital, where doctors found and extricated the octopus from his throat. Doctors also noticed injuries on the boy’s face, Espinoza said.

Explanations for how the bruises occurred and how the octopus became lodged in the boy’s throat weren't consistent with the injuries, Espinoza said, so the boyfriend was taken to City Corridor for questioning and later booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of child abuse.

The boy wasn't breathing when he arrived at the hospital, Espinoza said, but he's been upgraded to serious condition. Doctors are monitoring the boy’s condition to look whether oxygen deprivation has caused brain damage.

The deceased octopus, which had a head about 2 inches in diameter, was likely going to be slice up as sushi, Espinoza said.
