'People thought I set him on fire deliberately,' his mother, Rajeswari told IBN Live.

Yes "people." Like "everybody."

Sooooo, people still try to say that spontaneous combustion is a real thing, huh?


Seems more like mommy is having a lot of fun torturing baby.

I've never heard of a tenth degree burn before.  That must be really bad.
 
2013-08-12 12:51:05 PM
Ten degree burns? Is there such a thing as tenth-degree burns? I thought they only went up to three.

And I did not need to see images of a baby with burns, like, ever. :(

The worst I've ever heard of is fourth-degree burns:

fourth-degree burn,

a burn that extends deeply into the subcutaneous tissue, completely destroying the skin, subcutaneous fat, and underlying tendons, and sometimes involving muscle, fascia, or bone.

And they were right.  If not the mother, then someone.  Or he got too close to the fire.  Or something.  Hold that kid in observation for a year, and I bet his condition "miraculously" disappears.

People are sick farks.

could be Wick effect.  Babies have high fat contents, clothes catch fire from candles and the baby fat is the source for the fire, which is limited to the kid.

That's not spontaneous combustion. It's just a little Indian burn.

To be fair, spontaneous combustion IS a real thing.  Not in humans, mind you, but a hay stack or a pile of oily rags, under the right conditions can ignite itself.

You notice that it is always India where these wild-assed "medical" claims come from.

This. Giving the mother some degree of benefit of the doubt here, I'm going to guess cotton swaddling that, for some reason, frequently comes into contact with linseed oil. That could cause something like this, though it would be the clothing, not the baby, that is spontaneously combusting.

Remove the kids from parents, and this "spontaneous combustion" will NEVER happen again.

Not that they are the most reliable source on the planet, but Wikipedia lists a number of things that can sponteneously combust, and humans are NOT on that list.

I've always thought that concept was too absurd to even investigate.  I mean, the human body is almost 2/3rds water.  It seems highly unlikely that any chemical reaction could reach the ignition point.

Take the kid away from his mother for a month or two.  Bets nothing of the kind happens to him in that time.

ChipNASA: Munchausen syndrome by proxy


Also possible. It doesn't even conflict with my swaddling-and-linseed-oil hypothesis: usually that happens by accident, but it would not be hard to bring about deliberately. You wouldn't be able to control exactly when an incident happened, but it would be hard to prove that someone was doing it on purpose.

Uh-huh, lady.  To quote the great Mike Ditka, who you crappin'?  I think a better explanation for your little bundle of joy turning into a bundle of kindling is that you're setting his ass on fire because you're either a psychopath or suffering from postpartum depression/psychosis.  Either explanation will remove the child from your care, which needs to happen sooner rather than later.

There is no such thing as a "tenth degree" burn.  Medical sources list up to four, with fourth degree burns reaching all the way to bone.  The only people I have seen that mention even 5th or 6th degree burns are law firms that specialize in personal injury (not my preferred source for medical knowledge), and even they note that a 5th or 6th degree burn would normally only be detected in an autopsy.  The Daily Fail is living up to its nickname once again.

Munchausen by proxy, almost certain.

It came with the DVD but I don't remember if that was the Special Ultra Platinum Epic edition.
