Parents put infant in the microwave – and hit start

I always want to believe the best in people, until they prove me wrong.

So when I read about these parents, I nearly lost all hope for humanity.

This couple did something unthinkable and harmed a helpless child.

These terrible events occurred this year in Missouri, USA. A married couple, Derick Boyce-Slezak and Mikala Boyce-Slezak were raising a new baby.

But, they turned out to be the worst kind of parents.

Severe burns

In April, the couple took their 4-month-old baby to the hospital emergency room. Doctors discovered that the child had second-degree burns and a head injury, states


Seized by police

Mikala claimed that the child’s father had dropped their son when he imitated a television commercial.

She also said that he put the baby in the microwave and turned it on for a short period of time.

When the hospital staff heard this, they immediately went to authorities and the couple was arrested by the police.

They have been charged with child abuse and if found guilty, face imprisonment. The child has been placed with social services.

How could anyone do this to an innocent child? If you suspect a child is being abused, contact the police by dialling 911 — please share with your friends.
