Baby nuking

An Ohio coroner has declared death by microwave for a 1-month-old baby brought to the hospital by its mother a year ago.

The death was ruled a homicide caused by hyperthermia, or high body temperature. The absence of external burns ruled out an open flame, scalding water or a heating pad as the cause, [coroner] Betz said.

Betz said the case was difficult because "there is not a lot of scientific research and data on the effect of microwaves on human beings." (CNN)


Any volunteers? ;)
