PETERS TOWNSHIP (KDKA) -- A Washington County father is facing charges in the death of his infant son.
Peters Township police responded to Jordan Clarke's home on Pleasantview Drive in Peters Township on May 23 for a report of a baby that was not breathing, the criminal complaint said.
When they arrived Clarke, the baby's father, told officers he had caught his foot on a plastic grocery bag while trying to make a bottle and fell with the 11-week-old child in his arms, investigators said.
Clarke's father and sister, who live in the same home, said they did not see him fall on the baby, according to the criminal complaint.

The infant was rushed to UPMC Children's Hospital but died from his injuries the next day.
The doctor told investigators that the baby's injuries were "gravely concerning for physical abuse."
"This constellation of injuries is not consistent with the provided history that this child's father fell onto him from a standing height," the report from the doctor said.
The baby was suffering from injuries to both sides of his brain, hemorrhages in both eyes and possible fractures in both legs, the criminal complaint said.
KDKA-TV went to the home on Pleasantview Drive where Clarke told police that he lived with his father and sister. No one answered the door on Tuesday.
