An Alabama mother of a 10-month-old is facing charges after she was accused of intentionally scalding her baby by pouring hot soup on his face.
On November 14, a baby boy was brought to a local hospital in Mobile for medical treatment of injuries reportedly caused by serious burns.
According to reports, when the medical personnel examined the youngster, they noted that he was underweight for his age, and they believed he was suffering from malnourishment. In addition to the burns on his face, they also found scalding in his throat and on the inside of his mouth. It was believed that the injuries were caused by hot liquid being poured on him. The hospital treated the child, and they notified the authorities to report the injuries. An investigation was launched by the DA.
