Daniel was taken to the emergency room by his mother and a neighbor who heard him crying hysterically. The neighbor had knocked on the door of the home and found his mother, Adella, home, and little Daniel walking around without a shirt on. The neighbor said she saw the imprint of a burn on his back that was in the shape of an iron. While she was in the home, Daniel continued to cry hysterically. Adella told the neighbor that Daniel, age 3, pulled the ironing board over and was hit by the falling, hot iron. The neighbor offered to drive Adella and Daniel to the hospital. Daniel was very dizzy, sleepy, and appeared confused. He also seemed fearful when his mother interacted with him.

At the hospital, the nurse looked at Daniel’s unclothed back and saw the clear imprint of an iron on Daniel’s upper back. The skin was red and blistered, and the burn had not been treated in any way. The physician who examined Daniel was concerned and talked with Adella. During their conversation, Adella said Daniel wandered into the living room while she was changing clothes to go to work. She said she heard the ironing board fall over, but did not become concerned, because Daniel was “always into something.” Adella said she thought he was crying, because he was “having a tantrum,” and she ignored him as she continued to get ready for work. The neighbor knocked on the door just before she was going to leave for work.

The physician admitted Daniel, because the extent and depth of the burn required extensive hospital treatment. Further examination showed that Daniel had a small bruise on his forehead. Adella said Daniel rolled off the couch when he was watching television last night. When the child protective investigator checked for prior history, there were records of 3 previous abuse reports with minor injuries.
