TULARE COUNTY – Two parents were arrested last week after their baby suffered severe burns from hot water.

According to the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office, a 1-and-a-half-year-old child was taken to the hospital with second- and third-degree burns. Last Tuesday, May 4, the mother told detectives that the baby’s 3-year-old sibling knocked a Cup of Noodles container off the county and on the baby, the previous Sunday.

The mother, 28-year-old Daisy Magana of Porterville, said the baby did not have any visible burns until the next day. When the baby arrived at the hospital Monday morning, it was unconscious, suffering from seizures and had second- and third-degree burns. The baby was admitted into the burn center at a Fresno-area hospital. The baby was intubated and required an unknown procedure.

Anthony Garcia

Magana was placed under arrest and faces child endangerment charges. Her bail was set at $100,000.

On Wednesday, May 5, deputies arrested the baby’s father, Anthony Angel Garcia, 22. He is facing child neglect charges. Detectives said he admitted to being with the baby at the time the hot water was spilled, but did not seek medical attention. As of last week the baby was in the burn center at a Fresno-area hospital, but was no longer intubated and in stable condition.
