Authorities say a 14-year-old special-education student has been put into protective custody after being treated at an Omaha hospital for severe diaper rash.

Officials say the boy's diaper hadn't been changed at home, so he was wearing the same diaper school workers had placed on him the day before.

Court papers say it was the fourth time that had happened.

Police are investigating for possible child neglect.

The boy has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair.

His name hasn't been released.
