I saw this on our news today. It happened in a town just 20 miles from my house last February. A young mother (19) was trying to keep her sick 3mo. old baby warm so she used a hair dryer full blast on the baby's feet while she lay in the bassinet. the mother left the dryer in the bassinet and fell asleep for 3 hours! she woke up and rushed to the ER and upon arriving the baby had a temp of 108° which resulted in the baby's death. so now she has been in court & Im not sure what the judge has ruled for her sentence....
