You don't want to imagine all what you read in the indictment: "... what the hot water poured over them and her chest, neck, shoulder and left upper arm, scalding II and part III. degree of damage to persistent scars in the transplanted areas of the led."
Perhaps the girl will not suffer "life-long severe scalding," as your legal representative on Thursday told the court, even if, according to the children's hospital is still possible to predict how the scar tissue develops when the child is bigger, puberty comes.
From the steam intrigued
The devastating effects are the result of a small inattention, in which the trained and experienced social worker left for a moment the necessary care to miss. The idea was that Tuesday evening, shortly before the closure of the crèche, a charming been.
The Hortnerin made in the kitchen, in a kettle of water hot and poured it in bottle in a thermos to brew a so-called Coffee-to-go-mug with tea. The lid was open, as long as the tea should consider. The ascending steam, fascinated, apparently, the two girls present, five and nine years old.
The Hortnerin led the hands of the children through the rising steam, so that they could feel the heat. The warmth, however, is something completely different than the brühheisse water in the bottle, did not know the children. And the Hortnerin you made not attention.
After this short "field test" has sent the social worker, the children in the wardrobe, so that you move before you would be picked up. You yourself turned around so she could close the shutters adjacent to the kitchen.
nothing came of it. Because barely two seconds after the Turn, a violent scream filled the room. The five-year-old girl had gone to the dressing room, but according to the on the work island in the kitchen, the thermos bottle used. And you being overturned.
lost according to the lawyer, "very tragic event" had not only for the child, but also for the Hortnerin serious consequences. They had homes for many years in youth and children, or as a Hortbetreuerin worked, can no longer exercise their profession. The attempt failed after the traumatic experience back into the work and integrate regular Tremors, and heart palpitations.
"this Is not simply a tragic accident for which nobody is to blame?"Defenders of the accused have social worker
she said in court, still the feeling that you've actually made no mistake. The expiration for the end of the day was always the same. For years, she and other employees had made at the end of the evening tea. The dangerousness of their actions had not been at that time "in this scale aware".
"this Is not simply a tragic accident for which nobody is to blame?", asked her defender. His client had not been able to see what had happened. He requested an acquittal or, in the case of guilty, the waiver of a penalty.
This application, the single judge followed. The slight fault on the part of the wife have led to serious consequences for you and your life completely changed. So, you seem to be punished enough already. A guilty verdict but nothing passed. The Hortnerin have violated their duty of care. What was then done, would have been predictable and therefore preventable.
