    Doctors removed a small octopus from the throat of a 2-year-old Kansas boy, authorities said. 

    The boyfriend of the boy's mother was arrested and held on suspicion of child abuse in the incident Tuesday night in Wichita, according to police records and police sources who spoke to NBC's affiliate KSNW.

    The boy's 21-year-old mother found her 36-year-old boyfriend performing CPR on the child, who wasn't breathing, police said.

    Police documents say the boy was transported to a hospital, where an "obstruction" was removed from his throat. He was in serious condition Wednesday.
