MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Police now say several newborns were injured in an intensive care unit at a Wisconsin hospital.

Authorities earlier said there were "several unexplained injuries" in the newborn intensive care unit at Meriter Hospital in Madison.

A police spokesman said Friday that the injuries involve "several" infants. He declined to say the exact number.

The injuries have prompted a police investigation and an internal hospital review.

A hospital employee also has been suspended.
