Experts warn that it only takes a short exposure to this hot water to cause severe burns. Pictures of the child, who is expected to recover, show that he is now covered in painful blisters and peeling skin.
It’s worth noting that the woman did not know what had happened at first. She knew he’d been sprayed, and she said he hated it if water ever sprayed his face, so she didn’t think it was too bad. Before long, though, it became clear that he was actually hurt and needed to be treated.
This is an important thing for Arizona residents to keep in mind as the temps soar this summer. If you’ve been burned by a negligent homeowner, or if a child of yours has been injured in this fashion, you may be able to seek compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills and related expenses.
