Reports suggest that a merciless Florida mother is arrested; for killing her son by putting him under sweltering hot water. Since April 16, Emilio Jesus Bautista had been living terrible life as the 7-week-old was subjected to horrible physical torture at the hands of his mother Chekayla Ariel Dampier. Eventually, the toddler died last week.
Port Richey, Florida resident, Chekayala Ariel allegedly flushed the helpless boy under the hot-water tap; because he would not stop crying. Held on on $150,000 bail for aggravated child abuse, the cruel woman ‘punished’ her son by pouring 142 degree water; right over his head. This caused the toddler extensive burn injuries to his head, neck, shoulders, arms and chest; the poor baby boy also suffered severe, second-degree burns to both his eyes and ears.
Baby Emilio’s mother reportedly confessed to running the tap till the water temperature reached 142 degrees; she then held her son under the water for at least two to three minutes. As result of that, when the mother tried to dry the baby; the entire skin of the affected areas felt peeling and bubbling. Brought at the Morton Plant North Bay Hospital initially, the child was airlifted to Tampa General Paediatric Burn Unit injuries since the burns were too severe.
According to a report filed with Pasco Sheriff’s office, during an attempt to remove the infant’s shirt, his left nipple was completely pulled off. After living for a week or so after the incident, the poor child succumbed to his burn injuries at the hospital.
