A woman has been arrested on suspicion of neglect after a baby boy went into cardiac arrest at Legoland Windsor on Thursday, police have said.

The five-month-old was taken to hospital in a critical condition after the incident at around 1pm on 2 May, Thames Valley Police said.

The force arrested the woman, 27, who is from Witham in Essex, on Friday on suspicion of neglecting a child to cause unnecessary injury.

She has been bailed until 26 July and detectives say they are not looking for anyone else in connection with Thursday’s events. The child is still in hospital, police added.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Zoe Eele, of the force’s police child abuse investigation unit, said: “We are investigating a distressing incident involving a very young child at Legoland Windsor earlier this week.

“Firstly, our thoughts are with the family of the boy who is in a critical condition in hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest. We are supporting them as best we can at this extremely difficult time.

“We are working closely with the team at Legoland Windsor Resort but would like to speak to anyone who may have information about this incident, specifically anyone who was queueing for the coastguard HQ boat ride between around 11.30am and 12.45pm.”
