TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A 20-year-old baby sitter is charged with aggravated child abuse after Tampa police say she submerged a baby's feet in boiling water, causing second-degree burns.How someone can be so cruel to a small child is beyond me. That's why I make Maggie Nicole Williams today's Knucklehead of the Day.
Authorities say Maggie Nicole Williams was arrested Wednesday, one day after her mother called 911 to report that the boy they were baby-sitting had been severely burned while getting a bath.
The child is still in the hospital.
Police say Williams boiled a pot of water and poured it into a metal bucket, then intentionally immersed the child in the water. Her mother, Ruth Williams, calls it an accident.
Maggie Williams is in jail with bail set at $25,000.
