Man arrested over death of 10-year-old boy in tub of boiling water
This is a sad story that begs for further explanation. 90 degrees Celsius is about 194 degrees Fahrenheit. We usually leave our gas register in the bath set to about 39 degrees Celsius, or 102 degrees Fahrenheit. In winter, that's enough. Why go any higher? I'm not even sure ours will go much higher. So how did the man get his bathtub water so close to the boiling point in the first place? Why were they playing around near a tub full of hot water? I can imagine sequences of events requiring everyone to go to the bathtub and get close enough to it as a group for someone to fall in and I'd like to know which foolish scenario was in play.
I don't suppose we'll ever get a full accounting of how this accident occurred.
