Five Children Removed From Longview Family

A Longview couple has their children removed from their home by CPS, after what doctors suspect is a case of shaken baby syndrome. One of their children, a six month old girl, was hospitalized in mid-December when doctors at Dallas Children's Hospital found the baby had brain swelling and a left leg that had been broken twice.

The couple's five other children, all boys between the ages of 3 and 8, were removed from the home. Doctors say the six month old could suffer permanent brain damage.

No charges have been filed and the case remains under investigation.
