A five-year-old boy was repeatedly shot with a Taser gun leaving burns all over his body as a punishment for allegedly not doing his homework.
Doctors examining the boy in Tulsa, Oklahoma found burn marks on his back, arms, shoulders and stomach from where he had been hit with up to 50,000 volts.
Child crisis detectives said they had never come across an abuse case like it.
And the doctor who examined the boy for the alleged abuse was so stunned by what he saw that he volunteered to be shot with a Taser to see for himself what the boy went through.
Dr Michael Baxter asked a police officer to shoot him in the arm - and said the force of the electric charge almost knocked him out of his chair.
He said: 'It's really indescribable. Takes your breath away. I literally hit the floor with one hand and caught myself.'
