Father Arrested For Feeding His 2-Month-Old Baby Bleach…He “Heard It Helped Clear Up Congestion”

Which word describes him best….being dumb or being stupid…or just being idiotic?
A 20-year-old father, Carron Washington has been arrested for allegedly
feeding his to-year-old son with bleach – seriously, bleach?! Carron defended
his action saying he heard that bleach could help with the baby’s congestion.

According to a report from the Ocala Police Department signed by Sgt.
Michael Summer, 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

“You smell the baby bottle and it smells like complete bleach. And the
parents aren’t giving us a good story about how it got in there,” the caller
told a 911 dispatcher.
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.
The baby was originally taken to Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala
but was moved to Shands Medical Center in Gainesville, where she was listed in
stable condition. Medical staff said they noticed the baby’s vomit smelled like
bleach, and the bottle of baby formula also smelled the same way.
Carron Washington faces charges of aggravated child abuse. He was held on
$25,000 bond.
