“I asked the lady (Ford) for her child. She released the child to me. I comforted the child,” Sims said. “I noticed, actually, there was something more extreme in regards to the burns on the bottom of her foot.”
Nelson and Sims called the police. The baby was taken to a hospital, where she was diagnosed with second- and third-degree burns on her toes and feet.
A Greensboro Police Department spokesperson said the case is still under investigation.
