DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. —

Daytona Beach police said a 2-month-old baby is in critical condition with burns to more than half his body because his father left him in a sink with hot water running.

Police said James Arnold told them he was giving his son a bath when he left him to check on another child.

But investigators said about 36 hours passed before the infant got medical attention, and then a doctor found two other fractures that were healing.

Arnold faces felony child neglect charges.
