Detectives from Rockhampton Child Protection and Investigation Unit have charged two women in relation to a child who was found unconscious on a bus at Gracemere on May 4.
Police allege around 8.30am the two women picked the child up from a Gracemere residence.
It will be further alleged they drove to a childcare centre in Gracemere, parked the bus and left the child in the bus.
Around 2.45pm another staff member drove the bus to a school in Lucas St and observed the child unconscious in the back of the bus.
The three-year-old child was airlifted to the Queensland Children’s Hospital in a critical condition and has since recovered.
Today, a 31-year-old woman and a 30-year-old woman, both from Gracemere, were served a notice to appear for one count each of grievous bodily harm.
Grievous bodily harm carries a maximum sentence of up to 14 years.
They are due to appear in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court on July 26.
