Baby girl dumped into pot of boiling water dies

CHANGHUA, Taiwan -- The baby girl the nation has been praying for after she was dumped by her father in a pot of boiling water Saturday died Tuesday morning.

Changhua Christian Hospital doctors said the baby died of multiple organ failure, and the doctors took her off a life-support system at 10:05 a.m.

The 10-month-old girl, who was thrown into the boiling water by her father during a quarrel with the girl's mother, suffered second-and third-degree burns over 84 percent of her body.

The girl had been in critical condition since being rushed to the hospital by her mother after the incident.

The father is being held in custody by prosecutors and could face homicide charges.

DO YOU THINK SUCH CRIMINALS BELIEVE IN GOD...?? HE WANTED TO SHOW HIS POWER SO HE TOOK REVENGE FROM AN INNOCENT BABY. HE MUST BE HANGED TO DEATH IN PUBLIC SO THAT NO ONE DARES TO DO SUCH CRIME AGAIN.

OR HE SHOULD BE THROWN INTO BOILING WATER TO LET HIM HAVE THE SAME FEELING THE BABY FELT WHEN SHE WAS BURNED TO DEATH. WE ASK GOD TO GIVE HER MERCY & WE ASK GOD TO SEND HIM TO HELL.

"could face homicide charges"...Could? COULD?

These prosecutors must put this man in prison. He is clearly a threat to other people. Hopefully this is also a wake-up call to a nation where domestic violence is too often kept quiet.

Eye for an eye. Throw the sick bastard's ass into a pot of boiling water and see how he likes it.
April 21, 2009    tsungswang@
What a horrible person to do such things to a child, especially his own blood. He should never be let out of prison. Let him suffer in prison. My prayers to the mother and the siblings of the little baby girl. She will suffer no more. May she be in a better place.

My heart aches for that precious baby. What kind of animal could commit such a heinous act?

I don't believe in capital punishment, but in this case I am tempted to make an exception.

Tie this animal’s hands and hang this animal on an electrical post. Shower this animal with hot boiling water daily and let this animal taste his own medicine.

They must do what the Arabs do with their criminals. If somebody killed someone, that somebody will be hanged to death, too. If he's a thief, his hand will be cut 'cause he used his hand to get other people's things. May this little girl rest in peace!

I learned Buddha but still can't open my heart to accept this "basket" bloody rashness. I agree, an eye for an eye. Execute this basket by throwing him into a hot pot and burn 84% of his body, then bring him up 3 days later. Let's pray for this poor baby...

Situations like this will continue as long as individuals keep pretending to be victims of society, and blame others, instead of themselves for all the misfortunes that befalls them. BTW, what does China have to do with this? This was an evil man, who killed an innocent baby. It can happen in any country! Rest in Peace, Baby Girl.

I am a migrant worker here in Taiwan & I left behind in my native country my 3 kids, including a 1 year-old daughter. I often cried wishing I could be with them. But how can a father do such evil deed to his own child? I cried so hard when I saw the news. DEATH PENALTY NO LESS FOR THIS CRIMINAL!
April 24, 2009    iharry08@
I was really horrified to read this article in the papers...Please just imagine what a 10 month old baby has gone through. OH GOD!!!!!!!! Having 95% burn..... It’s better for her to rest in peace. Pray for this poor baby. Throw the idiot bastard into a pot of boiling OIL, not WATER.

Oh... my god. That's horrible. The child was completely innocent! How could the father do something like that!?! Rest in peace, little girl. [sniff]

But then, I won't say the father was evil in what he did, either. Heartless, sure, but not evil. What he did was not "wrong." In some cultures, that sort of thing is actually considered okay, since female lives are worth so little. I absolutely hate the man, but maybe it looked okay in his eyes. Meh.

Before anyone calls me "stupid," or "heartless," or "naïve," I am NOT siding with the father. I just don't think his act should be considered so horrible. After all, in the end it was just one (innocent, cute, soft) life. Think about how many people are killed each day on the battlefield, from murder, all those. Can this one life really mean so much? (Utilitarian view, maybe, but that's how I see it.)

What on earth are you talking about? Your logic is very, very strange. The father's actions were absolutely WRONG, even if certain cultures commit the same atrocities. This one life does matter. So you think this is just one more death...chalk it up, who cares?
May 15, 2009    elchiu@
Wow, xxeternalxxsufferingxx, you should "eternally suffer" for what you wrote above. Your 'logic' is like that of Josef Stalin, who said "One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic." It's people like you that allow this sort of thing to happen without commensurate moral indignation. If you don't care about the value of one life, at what number of lives do you draw the line and begin to care? 10? 20? 100? 1,000? Your moral and cultural relativism is what's wrong with societies these days--a cultural practice is not right because it's cultural! We have to judge culture by higher moral standards--otherwise, you could say everything about American culture or Chinese culture or Taiwanese culture is "right" because it exists!

We must care about the value of one life, because life is intrinsically valuable. The very fact that thousands of people die in today's wars, famines, and other horrible events does not mean that those peoples' lives are not valuable! It means that we, the people of the world, are doing a terrible job of protecting and preserving life! Using your utilitarian view of life, we should not even punish rapists or murderers, because they are not really hurting anyone, they are just playing with statistics! You need to spend sometime thinking about your views. What if you were the baby or even the mother?

It's easy. The Chinese believe that A boy will bring status. He will continue the family line. Which in turn brings about the high mortality rate of baby girls in china. It isn't uncommon to see a dead baby in the garbage or millions being neglected in foster homes. Don't hate them for their lack of understanding of how precious a life is and that their way of thinking is wrong. They cannot help the fact that their country is over populated and will surely some day go into turmoil. For these people will not only answer for their sins, but will repent ten fold when they die.

Ok that is just wrong. I get what you say that it looked ok in his eyes . But what you are saying that it was just a little soft life that he killed instead of like the lives of men and women dying and fighting in the battle fields.

This is the thing the 10 month old baby girl died of being boiled alive (by her own father) she didn’t c it coming.

I’m not saying that dying on the battle field is anymore or any less of what happened to the baby but this was a cruel act no matter what place country state culture YOU ARE NOT TO KILL YOUR OWM CHILD NO MATTER WHAT!!!

Don't worry, xxeternalxxsufferingxx. Nobody thinks you're siding with the father.
Instead, they all think that you are a heartless fool.
Oh, sure, it's alright if a baby girl dies for no good reason. She's just a statistic.
Well, guess what? She's not a statistic. She had a life, and it could have been a long one. It could have made a difference. But thanks to the cruelness of her own father, that life is gone. She was dumped into a pot of boiling water...and you say that since some cultures don't care, that this is okay??
And yes, we're not stupid. We know wars kill people. We know that murders are horrible. But again, this one life means something, to her mother, to her family, this little girl is irreplaceable. If you went up to their house and said, "Don't worry, war is worse, her life doesn't matter," I would bet my life savings that they would not be consoled by this.
What if it was you? If you were ruthlessly killed, would you want someone to say, "But lots of people die...so this person didn't matter."
Trying to soften up your argument with words like, "cute, soft, innocent" doesn't make it any better. Your message, loud and clear, is, "it doesn't matter".
Yes, war and murder is bad. YES, there are cultures with different beliefs. But a life is a life...not a number.

How dare this guy do such a thing to that beautiful little girl? Even when she was his daughter that god gave him. A child deserves everything positive in the world. I imagine how he will feel if his own father put him in hot boiling water that will cover 84% of his body. If he is at prison he should suffer and let him there unless like for 45 years. Let the girl rest in peace.

Yeah, why not. So u would even say 'she was but a product of his sperm that he failed to flush so he had full rights to do what he deemed as right' u know what being mother of a 10 month old baby girl and with my husband mentioning almost everyday how jinxed she is and how damn unlucky he is I know the pain ... The torture and the helplessness.

He's talking about China imposing a policy on killing or dumping baby girls. It's called female infanticide.

Let God deal with him. You are no better if you plan on doing the same thing to the father. It was very wrong and sick but two wrongs do not make a right. Pray for the mother and the baby is in a better place, God's punishment is far better than your own.

I don’t know why people are calling this person a father. Father is a tag that should be known as pride. I hate the fact people think boys are better than girls. In this case let the man suffer.

No, no, no. People like that do not deserve the pleasure of death. They deserve to suffer for their wrong doings. The rest of their life should be spent suffering, and questions of why? Why did I do it?

If public executions would deter people from committing crimes, we should all be saints by now. But ask yourself why people find public executions so much entertaining, instead of deterring.
