February 6th, 2014 – AICHI —

A man in Inazawa, Aichi Prefecture, has been charged with manslaughter over the death of a 10-year-old boy who fell into a bathtub filled with near-boiling water.

Police identified the suspect as Kazunori Mori, a 42-year-old truck driver. TV Asahi reported Wednesday that the incident took place at around 6 p.m. on Dec 9, 2012. According to police, the boy, Takeru Tsubaki, and his father were visiting Mori, who was a family friend. At some point, the boy fell into into a bathtub that had been filled with water with a temperature of 90 degrees C.

The boy died two weeks later of his injuries.

Mori was quoted by police as saying, “We were joking around, and then he fell in.” Mori told police he had attempted to save the boy and scalded himself in the process.
