“He was saying, ‘Mommy, please tell me to do it.
Mommy, don’t hurt me, please don’t kill me,'” said the mother of three, who was also a mother of four.
“He was crying and saying, I don’t want to hurt you, please please don�t kill me.”
The mother of two, who lives in an upscale community in California, said her son would scream and cry and his hands would get red, and he would tell her he wanted to die.
He would then tell her, �It�s okay, it�s going to be okay, I�m here, Mommy.
“So he�s been in my arms for hours and hours,” said the woman, who requested anonymity to protect her son’s privacy.
In an effort “to get this through the legal system,” the mother said she asked her son to take a polygraph test.
The tests showed the child had been exposed to “mild” levels of the chemical.
After his family saw the results, they contacted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which in January 2017 issued a warning about the potential for the chemical to be inhaled, ingested or absorbed through the skin.
A federal study, conducted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, found the chemical, which was first used to produce artificial pigments, has been linked to lung cancer in humans.
CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said at the time, the chemical is a known carcinogen and poses a serious risk to people who have never used it.
While the agency has no immediate plans to take any action, it said it is working to develop standards for manufacturing and testing.
