Epitome Of A Bad Mother/Babysitter: Kristal Khan Falls Asleep While Baby Drowns In The Next Room

- By Bossip Staff

This is one of those stories that will piss you off as much as it will make you sad.

A baby-sitter told a court how she awoke from a deep sleep to discover an 11-month-old boy she was supposed to be watching had fallen into a bucket of water and drowned.

Little James Farrior died in just six inches of water after toppling head-first into the three-foot-tall blue plastic bucket.
Kristal Khan, 29, admitted dropping off to sleep after chugging NyQuil because she had run out of non-drowsy DayQuil to help soothe her cold.

But she was woken by her four-year-old son, who said: ‘Mommy, James is in the water.’

Khan ran into the kitchen of her Queens, New York, home that doubled as a daycare centre and found the baby upside down.

‘I saw James half in and half out of the bucket,’ she said in a videotaped statement given to investigators in the hours after the tragedy in June, 2009.

‘I picked him up and tried to rub his back,’ she added.

In the same tape, the baby-sitter used a plastic doll to show how the child was bent at the waist leaning into the bucket.
She said she had put water in it the night before to mop up food colouring her daughter had spilled onto the floor.

The Trinidad-born baby-sitter faces four years in prison if she is convicted of a charge of reckless assault.

The District Attorney, Leigh Bishop, is giving Khan the SUPER side-eye…

…Bishop said the baby was left alone for one hour while Khan slept – and she showed little emotion when police officers arrived to find the child lying unresponsive by the bucket.
‘She was calmly and without emotion telling police what had happened,’ added Bishop.
‘She was very calm. She didn’t seem to be upset,’ said Detective Brian Simonsen, one of the officers who rushed to the scene.

What the fawk was on ITCHBAY mind?!?!? Cold or no cold, you deal with that ISHT. What you DON’T do is chug NyQuil like Gatorade while you’re watching someone’s child! Best believe the judge is going to sit you down to think about how, in the words of the great Antoine Dodson,”you are SO dumb!” SMH….woo-sah…

    Thats really sad and that picture just makes her look like a monster, she looks completely unaffected.

  • U NO COMPRENDE`

    If u run a d@mn daycare & you’re sick, HIRE HELP!! She was tryin’ to be cheap cuz I’m sure it would’ve taken only a day’s notice for her to find a responsible adult for that day or two. But THE most important problem of the whole equation is that you DO NOT (I repeat DO NOT) leave potential hazards of any kind within the area of where you are keeping children because they can & will get into whatever they can. Dumb dizzy a.s.s b!tch! If you’re not gonna childproof the home, don’t have children there! Simple! And for her to be devoid of emotion when recalling how a baby DIED while left in HER CARE?!?! She betta hope the prison sentence catches her first, cuz I can only imagine the rage of the mother of the baby..
    R.I.P Baby.

    Jesus wanted his disciples to pray with him when he was in Gethsemane , but the disciples fell asleep. Jesus really needed them at that time that would have been good for both Jesus and his disciples, but Jesus did not arrest them. To arrest whoever makes it harder on whoever,and God is thew ultimate Judge. arresting whoever has never help anyone at any time what soever.Therefore why do we still do it? Arresting her does not bring the kid back,and in fact kid is in the arms of the forgiving loving arms of Jesus right now. We need to be like Jesus to be saved where that kid is right now.

      I agree on some level that it could happen and that does not mean she is a monster because it did. I am a mother of 4 and I have fallen asleep when I probably should not have. I have had to get some sleep with a newborn and a toddler. So I can understand. But I do think she could have taken steps such as putting the kids down for a nap with her, putting the kids in a bedroom and locking them in the bedroom while she slept. If she had taken some steps then the child would be safe. But I know the only thing that separate me from her is grace.

  • bupac2010

    @artiewhitefox….so she shouldn’t be punished??? She neglected her duties …the child would still be alive if she wasn’t sleep…. no punishing her won’t bring the child back but she needs to be taught a lesson

  • Ryda4life

    I can’t speek for her but , Ive seen a lot of “lie to Me ” this chick is not telling the whole story . I suspect this kid was too vocal & she shushed him completely for being too loudwhile she was’nt feeling well. All babysitters know to baby proof the house is a number one rule. GOD be with the family on this ……

  • ErkNjerk

    I’m outta here. Going to go kiss my baby boy and tell him his Mommy loves him!
    RIP Little James…

  • Iyan

    I couldnt fall asleep with a 11-month old on the loose even if I popped a whole bottle of ambien. So I can’t help but feel there is way more to this story. Hell I couldn’t fall asleep with a 4-yr old on the loose. Anyways, it was flat out reckless and she should be charged accordingly.

    • napnap

      I AGREE! KIDS RUN A MUCK SO YOU CN’T JUST DROP ASLEEP ON THEM. BEING A BABYSITTER YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOW THAT. I DON’T PLAY THAT IN HOME DAYCARE CRAP. KIDS THESE DAYS ARE JUST TO BUSY IT TAKES A TEAM JUST TO LOOK AFTER ONE.

  • Annoyed

    It looks like she is looking very serious. She is reflected on the death of a child, her kids, their future, who will care for them will they be okay, what will prison be like and all of those things one thinks about when in front a a judge.

  • sweetheart

    Of course she was unaffected…it wasn’t her child, but that stuff WILL catch up with her! I think they should give her azz maximum punishment for being so negligent. THIS POOR CHILD SUFFERED BEFORE HE DIED…4 YEARS IS NOT ENOUGH!! RIP little baby😦 ….

  • BritishGirl

    If she wanted to sleep then why didn’t she put the baby into a cot, or a play pen? This makes me so mad, especially since it would have been a slow death. I hope the b!tch has a rough time in prison.

  • Luvvy22

    Poor baby

  • K-Kunta

    Nappy azz pony tail trife! and she don’t even have emotions about it Baby sitting is a job and is not time to sleep. You Cant sleep on kids period! I have been baby sitting kids for income and a while. How can you leave the child in some water? You could have at least took the baby out of the tub and laid the baby under you. No excuse.

    • Bex

      Reading is fundamental.

    • uhohitslelani

      LMMFAO @ Bex… I’m like “were we reading the SAME story.”

  • jojo54

    Well maybe i was just an accident…and this woman is in shock. My neighbors child creeped out of the house by accident and I brought him back. She turned her back for a minute and he got out.

    Dont think this cant happen to you>

  • Mabel

    So she couldn’t have had some lemon and honey, or a cup of herbal tea? I don’t believe this bullshyt story. There are so many treatments for the common cold that do not involve a sedative.

  • Tm30

    This is why I don’t do home daycares. And if I’m home alone with kids, I don’t take any type of medications that makes me sleepy, even at night. You never know when you need be alert to rush the kids to the hosiptal or something. This is just a sad case. However, I can’t fault the woman for not showing any emotions. We don’t know her background, some people are unnaturally calm during crisis situations. She could have been and still is in shock.

  • Lucy

    I KNEW THIS CHILD WAS BLACK BEFORE I CLICKED THE STORY. HOW MANY TIMES AM I SUPPOSE TO TELL YOU PPL INDIANS DO NOT WANT TO MIX WITH BLACKS!!!

  • severine

    what a cute booboo!!!! Aw, RIP little one.

    That babysitter was completely irresponsible and should do time. No question there. My heart goes out to the mom who has to deal with the aftermath of this very preventable mess. Don’t know how I’d get through this if I were her…

  • Sandy

    My vagina itches bad!! OOhhh!!

    • Mabel

      Use some Chlorox on it.

  • Allie

    This is why I can’t bring kids into this world, because of people like her, how could you be so stupid to leave a bucket of water around children, and then take on the job while ill? just can’t believe the stuff going on today

  • b-nice

    Trinidad people do not know how to show emotion. You don’t leave buckets of anything when you have an 11 month old walking around. I am sure the entire incident was a mistake on her behalf and it is a mistake she will have to live with for the rest of her life.

    • Deigo

      What kind of f$u$ckin comment is that? Your bit$ch a$$ obviously have not been around alot of Trinidadians tO make a remark like that and being from Trindad has nothing to do with what she did. She was trusted to take care of someone’s child and she was very irresponsible and wrong on so many levels. R.I.P little baby!!

  • Mabel

    This story is complete BS. There are numerous remedies for a cold that do not involve the taking of a drug that causes drowsiness. She could have had some herbal tea, honey and lemon or just take a Tylenol with some orange juice.

  • G.M.

    is killin kids the new trend for mothers or what, sh1t is crazy smh

  • Big Brutus

    Sigh. . .Im reading some of these comments and i just have to shake my head. Everyone has made a mistake that could have cost us big if things were to go another way so stop judging this woman. I feel sorry for her. her life is ruined. my heart goes out to the mother its just a tragedy on both ends.

  • bagladey

    That woman doesn’t look like she’s lost a wink of sleep over the tragedy, and she doesn’t sound bothered either.
