Second child dies after parents turn to prayer instead of doctors
PHILADELPHIA -- A Philadelphia couple serving years' probation for the 2009 death of their toddler after they turned to prayer instead of doctors has been arrested for violating their probation after another one of their children died. According to the Associated Press, Herbert and Catherine Schaible's 8-month-old boy died last week after suffering from diarrhea and breathing problems for a number of days. The Schaible's did not seek medical attention for their son because they belong to a fundamentalist Christian church that believes in faith-healing.
