A man has been arrested over the death of a two-month-old boy near Wagga Wagga in NSW’s Riverina region.

The baby was found injured at a home in the suburb of Kooringal, about 5am on Monday, police say.

Paramedics treated him at the scene before he was rushed to Wagga Wagga Rural Referral Hospital in cardiac arrest. He died a short time later.

It’s understood the baby’s mother was also assisting homicide detectives with the investigation.
