ADA, Okla. -- (KFOR) -- Parents of an infant who was reportedly burned over 40-percent of her body have been sentenced to prison after they failed to seek medical care for the baby.
“(The girl) stated the infant was in the sink under the running water, and she said she turned off what she thought was the hot water. However, she accidentally turned off the cold water and the infant was accidentally burned,” Ada Police Detective Brian Engel stated in an affidavit.
According to KXII, police said the water hit 145-degrees.
The teen girl told her mother, who then called the infant's parents, 25-year-old Patrick Edward Eddy and 26-year-old Candace Mercedes Matthews.
Eddy and Matthews then picked up the child and took her home.
The next day, the family friend went to check on the baby, an affidavit states.
The woman walked into the home and found the baby crying.
