Man accused of waterboarding daughter

Pediatrician Melvin Morse, known for research into near-death experiences, is now being accused of waterboarding his 11-year-old daughter. "How you would be if you were being dragged through the mud, you have had a good reputation as a fine physician" The 58-year-old doctor along with his wife Pauline were arrested on charges of conspiracy and endangering the welfare of a child. Morse's attorney Joe Hurley responded to accusations his client waterboarded his daughter four times over a two year period. SOUNDBITE: Morse's attorney Joe Hurley saying: "I have no idea what happened, I have never asked him. Absolutely not. And I explained to him as I explained to you because most people say 'what did he say,' I don't want to know his truth until I hear what their version is" He also acknowledged the highly charged nature of the accusations. SOUNDBITE: Melvin Morse's attorney Joe Hurley saying: "So waterboarding has a distinct emotional pull immediately when you hear it. It makes you think of bad, bad, bad people, and that attaches to you to some degree." Morse and his wife were released on bail and will be arraigned in the next few weeks.
