When a mum returned home to her six-month-old baby, she wasn’t met by a smiling happy bundle of joy that she had left earlier. As she returned to her house after being away for a few hours, she discovered that 36-year-old babysitter Ismelda Ramos Mendoza had harmed her daughter.
The moment she got through the door, she knew something was not right. Upon looking at her baby, she discovered that the soles of her feet were covered in huge blisters.
When she asked the babysitter what had happened, the babysitter said she had no idea. The mother was not satisfied with the answer and suspected the babysitter did something to her child. She called the police to lodge a claim of child abuse.
She then took her daughter straight to the hospital after speaking to the police, where she discovered the real extent of her wounds. On both feet, she had severe burns, as if they had been cooked.
After 36-year-old Mendoza was arrested, it was discovered that she had become angry while she was cooking when the baby didn’t stop crying.
Mendoza then grabbed the baby and forced her feet into the frying pan as punishment, according to The Washington Post.
