Dad: I thought bleach would help baby's congestion


WESHTue Feb 19, 2013 8:54 AM

OCALA, Fla. -  A 2-month-old baby is recovering after authorities said her father added bleach to her baby formula, according to video from WESH.

 Sgt. Michael Summer of the Ocala Police Department said Carron Washington, 20, fed Caelynn Washington bleach because he heard it could help with the baby's congestion.

According to a police report, the child's mother went into the child's room after she heard her crying, and the child spit up a clear liquid that smelled like bleach. She called 911, and the child was taken to the hospital.

A hospital employee called police.

"You smell the baby bottle and it smells like complete bleach," a caller told a 911 dispatcher. "And the parents aren't giving us a good story about how it got in there." 

Police said Carron Washington broke down crying at the police station and admitted to putting bleach in the child's bottle, saying he heard from a friend in school that it works as a medical cure. He said he mixed less than a cap-full of bleach with less than two ounces of formula.

"This would probably be the dumbest decision I ever made in my life, and I regret it 110 percent," he said.

Bleach dissolves body tissues very well. Did the child survive?
