Carron WashingtonCarron Washington, 20, the Florida father arrested Sunday for giving his infant daughter bleach to help alleviate her congestion, said in a press conference that he would never hurt his daughter and giving her bleach was “dumb,” reports Gainsville.com.

“It’s probably the dumbest decision I’ve made in my life,” Washington said to reporters.

According to Washington, his daughter Cadlynn, born December 14 with her esophagus detached from her stomach, has suffered from breathing problems since her birth. Allegedly taking the advice of a “pre-med” classmate at the College of Central Florida who claimed to use the dangerous remedy for her child, Washington poured less than a capful of bleach in about two ounces of formula.

Gainsville.com reports:

On Saturday night and Sunday morning, the baby was fussy. After waking up at 1 a.m. Sunday, Washington put the bleach in the bottle and fed the child some of the formula, according to OPD reports.

The child vomited some of the liquid and started to cry.

“I panicked. I immediately called 911, called my parents, called her parents and started crying,” Washington said.

The child was rushed to Munroe Regional Medical Center and then to Shands.

Initially, Washington denied putting the bleach in the bottle, OPD reports state.

“I was scared of losing her. I didn’t think of all the cons,” he said.

Lt. Billy Woods of the Ocala Police Department said that Cadlynn was listed in stable condition at Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville, reports Gainsville.com. Washington says that he hopes to be free soon so that he can see his daughter.

“If I can love anyone as God love us, that’s pretty much how much I love her,” he said. “I’ll do whatever I have to do to see her.”

Washington was charged with domestic aggravated child abuse and is being held without bond.
