Brooklyn Dad Hurls Acid at Daughter

A 69-year-old Brooklyn resident sent his daughter running into the street screaming after allegedly dousing her in acid, reports The Associated Press. Neighbors scrambled to help as 49-year-old Darlene Lynch ran hysterically onto to the street while her face peeled and her clothes disintegrated. Neighbors told the local newspaper that smoke could be seen coming from her body and that her face looked like “melting wax.” It remains a mystery why the man—who is in a wheelchair and suffering from memory loss—poured acid on his daughter, his sole caregiver. Lynch was taken the hospital in critical condition Saturday, and sources say she may suffer the loss of her left eye.
