I read this story in the Quill this evening and find it difficult to believe anyone could be burned so badly it results in death from water in a bath tub. The temperature on the hot water heater must have been set far above the normal and recommended level, and the tub must have been filled with hot water alone.

So many little ones in our community come to a painful and untimely end because their caregivers are careless and/or reckless. There must be more to this story and isn't being said.

Wow. That's really sad :( Poor baby. I hate when I read/hear about stuff like that about children, I can't believe that some parents are so careless.

I'm honestly interested to hear their side of what happened. Although it sounds like there's no Way this could've happened accidentally, I'm curious to know their defense. I feel for the family. This is why people should watch their babies more carefully.

well since you apparently dont know the family i dont feel that you need to know anything except that a little girl lost her life and her family needs prayers right now not you trying to judge them!

Well I wasn't trying to judge them and I wasn't directing my comment at just them because like you said I don't know the family and I do feel for them because it's hard to lose a child but something doesn't add up here. I'm very sorry for their tragedy. In order for people to understand and send out their sympathy they would need to know the whole story but I don't think that Topix is the appropriate place for that and the family certainly doesn't deserve that. On a side note people who don't take of their children and something horrible happens to them they disgust me. No child deserves to be treated poorly no matter what.

I also saw the story in the paper and wondered the same thing. And I don't think anyone was judging anyone else. We all need reminders of how quickly things can happen; how precious every life is; The OP simply said there must be more to the story. If the baby was alone in the bath - the caregiver was careless. If the baby was not alone, the circumstances are still questionable.

This is a very very sad story. Im sure there will be some sort of police investigation and the truth about what happened will come out. If i understand correctly this baby was in the care of another woman with how many kids of her own??

The truth will come out in the end you know.
People that let this kind of thing happen shouldn't be allowed to have any more kids.

anyone who does this to a child needs to be sent up or worse. I dont care who the family is. another ozark goober I am sure. i hope the rest of their kids are taken. the father is at fault if he left the care of his kids in the hands of a nut. i hope they fry him as well.

My concern is that a child died under what are suspicious circumstances.
If I was friends with a family that had a child die and there was ANY way it could have been their fault, I wouldn't care about how they feel, honestly.
And isn't this girl 18? She already has two kids, one on the way; that makes four counting the one that is now deceased?
What is this child doing having all these babies?

okay that is enough is was not something that was purposely done and yes it is horrible and she shouldn't have been careless but hell no is the father at fault!! he is a good guy and loves his kids more than anything and doesn't need this!!
Stop Plz

it is not at all the fathers fault and Shady was not her little girl and she is 21 with 2 kids and one on the way that is his. and yes there will be an investigation.

it makes me sick this baby was just at my house and so sweet...definitly an angel, and to think that this child was taken from her mother and left with the father for this to happen , something aint right with this story...yes accidents happen but before a two yr old gets in a bath dont a mother check the water temp? a good mother would...i pray for the family and hope that the surviving 4 yr old and the other children are not left in the same care...

The truth??? Do you read Topix much? Truth is a subjective matter to people. They will believe and repeat whatever they want to. Facts and truth have little to do with it.
