Can you imagine the indescribably torturous pain that little baby must have gone through with its head and upper torso directly under a tap gushing scalding hot water as it entered and burnt his eyes, face, ears and body? And just because he was crying!
Baby Emilio Jesus Bautista has suffered extensive burns to his head, chest and arms, as well as second-degree burns to his eyes and ears after his mother - Chekayla Dampiehas, placed him under hot water to stop him from crying.
The mother has since been arrested on charges of aggravated child abuse and is being held on a $150,000 bond.
The baby’s skin was coming off and bubbling and a report filed with the police said that ‘the infant’s burns on his chest caused his left nipple to pull off when his shirt was removed”
Baby Emilio is still in critical condition and doctors at Tampa General Hospital have told investigators that it was too early to say how badly the child’s eyes and ears may have been damaged
