2-month-old Lucas Ruiz was admitted to the hospital back in October for a breathing problem which doctors attributed to an undisclosed illness. He was set to have surgery but his 19-year-old sperm donor, Cesar Ruiz of Belle Chasse, Louisiana, had a different way of trying to treat his son.
Ruiz has allegedly confessed to taking one of his son’s feeding tubes home, filling it with rum, then giving it to his son at the hospital. Did I mention that his son is TWO-MONTHS-OLD? The baby ended up having a BAC of .289. The alcohol caused the baby to go into seizures.
Ruiz said that he was trying to keep his son from suffering but didn’t mean to kill him. Uh-huh. To me this sounds like one of two things. He either didn’t want the kid and thought that this could be his way out of it or he has Munchausen by proxy. Since MBP is rare but not unheard of with men I’m going to guess the former.
Alcohol doesn’t solve everything assmunch. He should be injected with grain alcohol until his internal organs burst.
Thanks to Amanda for the tip.
