You might wish to go read your bible again Father Hicks. Take note to the. words that follow the ones you quoted out of context. We are to judge one by their fruit. Please tell us of the fruit of this horrible acci- no, it is not an accident when a child gets burned so badly by water, not fire, that she is taken to the burn center in Springfield and passes away several days later.
I think it is horrible that a child's life was lost, no matter of whom is at fault. Maybe you should follow your own advice and seek what the bible says about judging when you lay down next to the woman that allowed your child to be burned so badly.

just because he picked a shitty woman, doesnt mean hes a bad personal or father. People make mistakes, he has to pay for it not you people. Does nobody know how to read? He wasn't home, he had no idea what would happen. You are all ridiculous. I'm very sorry for your loss TJ. I don't know what i don't know what i would do in your position. Be strong. Everyone on here don't ever forget, never leave your children with anyone, not even your spouse. You just can't trust anyone. Everyone is "careless" with their kids in some way, some in serious ways, don't ever take your eyes off your child. Ya right! Are you kidding me?

In the first place.....this is not an accident...if this child had been alone, and she had turned the water on, and tryed to get in the bathtub, a human responce is...."ouch that is hot" and would have automatically jercked it back out. Someone ran this water and for it to be this hot to kill a human being THE WATER WOULD HAVE BEEN STEAMING. DUH...and when it is "steaming" your naturall instincts is "check" the water!!!!...so yeah...no accident in my eyes. Im just sayin.

My children aren't old enough to read, lmao! If you must know though they were sitting in the room with me watching a movie. I don't leave my children unattended so don't try to make me look like a bad parent. My kids have never been left alone because I actually care about my kids and I don't swear in front of them. When they learn to read I won't write them either.

thinknig a baby dies is so sad. to the ppl who talk about why didnt she hear that baby scream if the water was to hot, i hope that if she was going to die, maybe she drowned before the water was hot enough to make her scream. i just cant bear the thought of whta she went through. i only hope she was already gone before burning like that so she didnt suffer more

She was the girlfriend, and the autopsy was done today. They haven't released the details yet though.

Even if the child flipped on the hot water, i can't see that burning her so bad without someone hearing her cry. My kids think the water is too hot when i think it's warm.
Exactly. It's cold and they think it's hot! How could you not hear a baby scream, and if you did, why wouldn't you go check on them?????? Odd..

I guess I have some how missed the whole story. I get the jest of it. A gf was babysitting her bf 2 year old. The child got burned so badly by hot water that she later passed away in a very intensive burn unit.

Okay, what was the baby doing in the water? Was the gf giving her a bath? Where was the gf while the baby was in the water? How long was the gf out of the room? Was the tub already full of water and the baby wondered in and fell in it or was the baby in the tub and turned on the hot water? Was there no crying? Where did the cold water comment come in at? Was the baby then put in cold water from being in hot water? Would this not cause shock? What was the cause of death? Burns are not the cause of death if she was still alive in the burn unit, at least not topical burns. How long was the baby in the hot water? The gf drove the baby to the ER from where? Was the baby breathing and alert when found or arriving at ER? I guess I should have bought the paper huh? I just would like to know the story so some of it makes sence to me. I just have a hard time understanding how this could happen, and with hot water. I know water can get hot, even turned up, but there has to be a start to finish to this story, even if it is not the truth.

Burns could/can be the cause of death. It takes 24 hours for a burn to process, in the meantime she could of gotten an infection that spread so fast they couldnt handle it, she could of had surgery and crashed, being so young and little her body maybe couldnt take the pain and her body just shut down. There are plenty of ways a child/adult can die from burns no matter if they got the burns from water, fire or chemical.

That is what I am saying. Burns can not be the cause of death. In those examples, the infection would have been the actual cause of death, not the burns. Trama or heart failure in the OR could be the cause of death as well, but again, the burns would not be the cause. I am not saying the burns are not at fault for the cause, but the cause can not be burns unless a person passes while being burned. So, again, the cause of death can not be burns. It can be the cause was a result of the burns, but the burns are not what the cause of death will be if she was alive for a couple days. I am not denying that the result of the burns was what led to the cause, just would like to know the actual cause, which will state in the autopsy.

there has been so many posts on this that the facts have seemed to been mudded down a bit. The newspaper quoted some cop in stating, she was taken to OMC, then moved to St Johns Burn Center in Springfield, where she passed a few days later. That same days paper also lists another child death and it states there that no matter if fowl play is suspected, it IS investigated by a agency that will come from out of town. I can not remember the name. Which gave me relief since most of the cops in WP can't find shit on toilet paper and they think the people of wp are just as dumb or dumber.
