A father has admitted waterboarding four children - including his two sons - after claiming it was a learning experience for them.
William Province, 42, pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child and was given two years' probation.
Province from Jefferson County, Montana, carried out the torture, which simulates drowning, on his nine and 12-year-old sons and two other children aged 13 and 15, according to court documents filed by prosecutors.
His girlfriend at the time said he broke her wrist and some fingers on December 5 when she tried to stop him from punishing the children, court records said.
She said Province straddled each boy with his hands over the child's face and mouth and dumped water on their faces to simulate drowning.
