Default Baby burned by oil

I have had four kids, none of which, at age 1, would have been able to climb
on top of the stove to pour oil over themselves. Is there an epidemic of
stupid, irresponsible, negligent or sometimes downright criminal people
breeding more lately?

Toddler, 1, Badly Burned by Hot Oil from Stove
Allentown, PA
A 1-year-old toddler burned nearly half his body with hot cooking oil Monday
night when he tipped a pan off the stove in his Allentown home, police said.

The burns appear to be accidental but police are investigating, which is
customary, said Ronald Manescu, assistant police chief.
It happened about 10:20 p.m. in an apartment at 738 Gordon St., Manescu
said, without giving the victim's name. Someone in the home was preparing to
cook french fries and heated the pan of oil, Manescu said.

The 1-year-old climbed on the stove and tipped the handle of the pan,
splashing himself with hot oil. He was burned over 40 percent of his body,
Manescu said. He said it appears the toddler will recover from his burns.

I would almost say they are doing OK if they have a 1 year old kid smart
enough and coordinated enough to climb up onto a counter at the age of 1.
He just got a lesson in hot oil too.

My son could have. He walked on his 10-month birthday, ran two weeks
later, and could easily climb out of his playpen.

Parents were negligent in this case, though. Sadly, this sort of
incident happens quite frequently.

As I've pointed out before, two recent and accurate surveys prove that about
54% of the population is simply stupid. Incidents like this are the result.

I understand what your saying, but my parents where neither abusive or
negligent and I managed at
a year old to scoot into the kitchen and grab the cord from the percolator
that was just barely hanging
over the edge of the counter. Yes, you could say that in a way my parents
were negligent. But they were so
vigilant with everything else and it is amazing what small children and
animals can get into, onto and around.
Luckily the scalding coffee missed my face and head and all I have left are
some faint scarring on my right arm
and tummy. Not saying the parents aren't at fault, just saying that they
aren't necessarily at fault.

Does everybody dig up horrific news items and post them here? Awful
things happen every day, and they always have. The local news just
wasn't broadcast (until recently) for all the world to sift with one's
favorite search engine.

Post to alt.dead-baby or something.

This was in yesterday's news, a grandmother poured scalding hot coffee
on her granddaughter - intentionally!

My oldest daughter started walking at nine months and was running around and
climbing pretty well by 11 months. If there had been a step-stool by the
stove, she could have easily climbed onto it and then been able to reach the
handle of a pot sitting on the stovetop.

Well gee, there's a grandmother whose priorities are in the *wrong* place!
Sheesh! What is wrong with some people?!

When these things come up, why do we always turn a blind eye to two
possibilities: drugs and alcohol? They don't call it "dope" for
nothing, and "booze" rhymes with "wooze" for a reason.

Also, cooking accidents and hot & nasty food safety issues are, indeed
relevant to this group. The originator did a great job by writing a
descriptive topic which makes it easy to pass over the topic if we
don't want to read the details.

Thank you verry much. Elvis-ettta has left the room.

If the kid is 1 year 11 months, he would be reported as one
year old in the media.

Sad incident this, but it's good that the prognosis is full recovery.

I would have given this thread a much snappier
subject line. :-)
