The parents of a 4-year-old boy from Arizona, USA, will face abuse charges for child abuse.

According to the local police, the mother scolded her son with boiling water and then intentionally kept him away from getting medical attention for about two weeks.

The mother, Mrs. Joscilin Smith, 28, allegedly threw a pot of boiling water at the boy’s father, Mr. Aaron Roland, during an argument. Some of the water splashed on the boy.

Medical documents say the boy suffered severe burns on his back, arm, shoulder and leg. They have been classified as the second-degree burns to 8 per cent of his body.

According to the local newsmen, the couple, who have seven children between ages one and 10, told police they didn’t take the child to the hospital because they were afraid they would be suspected of child abuse and lose their kids.

Mrs. Joscilin Smith has been charged with aggravated assault and three counts of child abuse, while Mr. Aaron Roland has been charged with a single count of child abuse.

According to police, the victim’s siblings reported a history of verbal and physical abuse.

The injured toddler’s maternal grandmother
told police that she was on the phone with Mrs. Smith on July 27 when the bad parent of seven hurled a pot of boiling water at her husband during a fight.

Mr. Roland immediately applied some medical
treatment for burns to his back and buttock, but the couple allegedly decided not to take their son to a hospital.

On August 9, 2013, Friday, police officers responded to the couple’s home in the 7300 block of East Naranja Avenue after getting a request for a welfare check from Child Protective Services.

Sammie-Jo Olson, who lives across the street from Smith and Roland, said that she håð heard about the incident and called CPS three times, asking to check up on the boy.

At first, Mrs. Smith and Mr. Roland told officers
that their 4-year-old son was staying with relatives.

When police discovered the burned child
tucked away in a bedroom closet, both parents
claimed that the pot was accidentally knocked over.

During questioning, however, the mother and father admitted to inadvertently injuring their son during an altercation and blamed the other for failing to get medical attention for him.

In the course of the 13 days the toddler had remained at the house, his parents reportedly treated his severe injuries with ointments and bandages, but the burns did not heal properly.

The 4-year-old has since been taken to Maricopa Medical Center Burn Unit, where he may now require a surgery.

‘Had that child received medical attention the same time that the father did – very likely not looking at as serious a condition as he is in now,’ Mesa Police Sgt. Tony Landato told the station KPHO.

The parents have reportedly had several run- ins with child services in Arizona and Wisconsin over the years. Their six children have been placed in the custody of CPS.
