A MAN who is accused of causing horrific injuries to a 10-month-old baby by boiling him in a shower had just ­received the all clear to look after another infant by NSW’s child protection agency.

The baby boy was last night fighting for life in an ­induced coma with bruising to his skull, jaw and third degree burns to half of his body.

Police claim the man accused of attacking the boy told them the toddler had thrown up so he put him on the floor of the shower of a Penrith home and turned on the water ­before going to charge his phone and smoke.

The boy’s skin was “peeling off” when he returned, he told police.

The 10-month old baby who was left with critical burns to 40 per cent of his body.

He allegedly told police “I f … ed up” and asked officers not to tell the baby’s mother for fear he would lose contact with his own child, Penrith Local Court heard yesterday.

Police, who charged the 23-year-old with reckless grievous bodily harm, said the baby had other injuries “consistent with blunt force trauma.”

Unemployed and living on welfare, the accused had recently resumed custody of his son after the child was taken by the Department of ­Community Services, which refused to comment on the case.

    Why is he not in prison? Why is it that nobody cares? He is way to incompetent to be watching a 10 month old that he obviously beat then tried to drown/ scald to death. What a sick piece of shit! Stories like these is why I have lost all faith in the “justice” system. This guy should be tortured to death. Plain and simple. If only I ruled the world………..
