En Singapur, una menor de 16 meses de edad, tuvo que ser hospitalizada tras presentar quemaduras de segundo grado en su brazo izquierdo.

Al ingresar al hospital, los médicos interrogaron a la niñera, quien aseguró que la bebé se había quemado al tocar una olla caliente. Sin embargo, esta versión no convenció al personal médico, por lo que pidieron a los padres de la menor, investigar lo ocurrido.

Fue entonces que la madre de Amy Low, revisó las cámaras de su hogar y se percató de que la empleada doméstica metió en repetidas ocasiones el brazo de la bebé en agua hirviendo.

La empleada fue detenida y declaró que lastimó a la bebé para que así, la dejaran irse a su casa, en Myanmar.
