The father of 5-week-old twins was arrested Sunday night after both children ended up in the hospital with serious injuries, according to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.
Officers responded to Palmetto Health Richland around 7 p.m. Sunday night. After speaking with doctors, nurses and the infants’ parents, officers arrested the father, 45-year-old Michael Livingston, and charged him two counts of ill treatment of children, sheriff’s department spokesman Sgt. Curtis Wilson said.
The children, who suffered injuries to their upper and lower bodies, remain in the hospital in serious condition, Wilson said.
