Police in Northern California arrested an 18-year-old Fairfield man Thursday who they say bit off his infant son's nose after becoming frustrated with the baby's incessant crying. The month-old boy was taken to Oakland Children's Hospital, where doctors determined that the baby also suffered a skull fracture and brain hemorrhage.  The child is in stable condition, said Troy Oviatt of the Fairfield Major Crimes Unit.

The rate of deliveries before 39 weeks without a medical reason fell to 4.6% last year compared with 17% in 2010 among nearly 1,000 U.S. hospitals that reported results.
