Girl claims she was "waterboarded"
GEORGETOWN, DELAWARE- A girl who claims she was "waterboarded" by her mother's boyfriend described how he held her face under a running faucet to punish her.
The 12-year-old testified at the trial of Melvin Morse, a pediatrician, who pleaded not guilty to endangerment and assault charges.
The girl says she was punished for things like spilling milk, shaking an upside-down ketchup bottle, and vomiting into a cat's litter-box after being made to eat too much.
Morse denies he may have been experimenting on the girl after telling police he has researched near-death experiences involving children.
