Candian Man Tries To Reduce Baby's Fever By Sticking Her In Freezer

Those dumb, uncultured, uneducated Canadians:

A Canadian man who could not figure out how to deal with his girlfriend's feverish 10-month-old daughter put the baby into a freezer to cool her down, a local newspaper reported on Friday.

Derrick Hardy faces charges of criminal negligence and assaulting the infant, who was rescued when her mother came home, the Charlottetown Guardian said.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. said the mother found the girl crammed into the freezer alongside ice cubes and hamburger meat.

Come on -- kids love the freezer. Ice cubes and hamburger meat? The only thing that could make it more like Heaven would be if she were buried in Fudgicles.

Hardy said he had left the door ajar but the mother said it had been closed when she returned.

You've heard the old saying: feed a cold, asphyxiate a fever.

Fire needs oxygen to burn, right? 'Nuff said.

He told a court in the eastern province of Prince Edward Island on Thursday the child had only been in the freezer for about 40 seconds.

Hardy, 21, who admitted to police that he had no real parenting skills to deal with a sick child...

He admitted that? Seems like quite a concession.

... said he had noticed the girl was very hot and put a cool cloth on her face, but this had no effect.

He then carried the girl outside into the night air but, frustrated that this also did not work and worried she might drown if placed in a cold bath, he put the baby into the kitchen freezer. She was wearing only an undershirt.

The only thing is... isn't an ice-bath used, sometimes, with a very bad fever?

Just sayin'.

Well, okay, it's different. But the principle is about the same, or might look that way to a moron.

Now, closing the door...

Apparently he was worried enough about the fever to put the kid into an icebox, but not quite so worried to call a doctor.

Thanks to yls.
