A Queens man was arraigned Thursday on charges he intentionally poured scalding water on his girlfriend's 11-month-old daughter.
Anthony Parra, 20, is charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
The little girl is said to be in critical condition and on a ventilator.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown says Para left the baby in a running shower Wednesday morning because she was crying, and then turned up the temperature twice.
He also says Parra took hotter water from the kitchen sink and poured it on the baby. He also allegedly put cream and alcohol on the baby's burns before taking her to New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens.
She is said to have suffered severe burns to more than 30 percent of her body.
Parra was babysitting the little girl and her two-year-old sister while their mother was at work.
