LINCOLN, Nebraska — A 23-year-old Lincoln man has been accused of shaking his infant daughter and throwing her down into her crib.

Police say Luis Ortiz was arrested on Friday on suspicion of felony child abuse. Online court records don't list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on behalf of Ortiz.

Lincoln police spokeswoman Katie Flood says Ortiz called 911 on Thursday and started CPR on the infant after he saw her having seizures and being unresponsive. The little girl was taken to a Lincoln hospital and then transferred to Children's Hospital & Medical Center.

Flood says officers think Ortiz became frustrated with his daughter because she was fussy.
