Mother Arrested for Burning Baby in Hot Water

A Florida mom allegedly placed her seven-week-old son under 142 degree water so he would stop crying — can you believe this happened?

Chekayla Dampier of New Port Richey, Florida ran water until it reached a scalding temperature and held her seven-week-old son Emilio Jesus Bautista under for two or three minutes, just so he would stop crying! 

She has been arrested for aggravated child abuse.

The infant has suffered severe burns to his upper body including his head, chest and arms. He also suffered from second-degree burns on his ears and eyes, The Daily Mail reports. He is currently in critical condition.

“The infant’s burns on his chest caused his left nipple to pull off when his shirt was removed,” the Pasco Sheriffs office reports.

The 18-year-old mother claimed baby Emilio’s skin was peeling and bubbling when she went to dry him off, Tampa Bay Online reports. She then took him to a hospital nearby, yet the baby’s burns were so immense that he was helicoptered to Tampa General Pediatric Burn Unit.

“This is one of the most horrific child abuse cases we’ve seen in years,” Pasco Sheriff’s spokesman Kevin Doll says.

F.U. DW…I don’t need a spelling lesson (it was a typo, idiot!). I won many spelling bees in school, and I’m sure I’m much smarter than you – it has nothing to do with smarts – it’s an opinion that I am entitled to!!

I totally agree with Laurei. I am tired of them coming to this country as “refugees” (Somalians) and going on welfare right away, as of course other foreigners do to.

DW,
Don’t put words in my mouth, I never said that “whites” don’t do anything stupid, of course they do. I am not mental, but a lot of people around here feel the same way I do. I work in a prison in rural Minnesota and blacks are the ones most likely to get into trouble and a much more huge percent of them are in jail/prison than others. They are trouble makers.

WOW Laurie,

You are ignorant and racist. You probably did not think about what you said before you said it. Just because you work in a prison, you think you know everything there is to know about black people. Why don’t you educate yourself before making a stupid comment like that. It is not about being black, it is about the baby.

This b***h should be NEUTERED! And then sent to prison for attempted murder!! Seriously, people like her should NEVER be allowed to have children! she’ll unfortunately probably end up pregnant again soon, these poor innocent children have no choice but to be born to this sick disgusting person!! This story makes my stomach hurt, that poor baby! When will idiots realize babies cry! and there’s usually a reason why! They need LOVE not punishment!

This is the saddest story period! God bless that baby I can’t imagine the pain it went through! I pray she never gets that baby back ever! As far as the mother being African-American what does that have to do with anything? A baby, an innocent was almost murdered here! The focus is on the wrong thing, race, and not that a poor, defenseless baby was nearly killed!
