MARION COUNTY, Fla. —

A Marion County man was arrested on child abuse charges after investigators said he threw boiling water on a baby.

Investigators said Christopher Welling, 36, walked into a home where a woman was babysitting the 15-month-old. The woman told officers that Welling told her he was a friend of the baby's mother and he was just going to "chill" at the house.

According to a report, the babysitter told him he had to leave because she did not know him. She said that was when Welling grabbed boiling water from the stove and threw it on the baby.

The babysitter said she grabbed the child and ran to her friend's home for help. She said Welling ran to his truck and drove off.

The report also stated that the babysitter was able to take Welling's license plate number from his truck, before she and her friend drove the baby to the hospital.

Officers said they tracked down Welling at his home and he told them he didn't think the incident was a big deal.

According to the report, when the officers told Welling that the baby was at the hospital being treated for burns to his face, chest and groin area, Welling's response was, "Life sucks."

Investigators said they arrested Welling, who smelled of alcohol.  

Welling is being held at the Marion County Jail on $5,000 bail.

Well the cops should throw boiling water on his ding dong. And when he complains just say, " oh well life sucks dipshit." As for the baby, I hope everything turns out well for him.
