Woman Arrested For Pouring Boiling Hot Water On Toddlers Hands
A West Jordan, Utah woman has been arrested and charged with child abuse after she intentionally poured scalding water onto her daughter’s hands. The one-year-old girl suffered third-degree burns.
22-year-old Diana Amador, was charged in the 3rd District Court on March 14 with one count of child abuse. A probable cause statement mentioned that Amador became frustrated with her daughter and “intentionally poured scalding hot water on [her] hands.”
Officer Scott List of the West Jordan Police Department said that the water was apparently being prepared for a pot of coffee.
“She grabbed the 20-month-old, put her over the kitchen sink, then poured the coffee over the baby’s hand,” the Officer said.
Amador was booked into jail on the 28th of February. Following this case, List urges parents to take a moment before deciding how to disciplining a child.
“Don’t punish in the heat of the moment,” he said. “Take a break. Breathe for a minute. Do what you need to to calm down, then deal with your child”
