Just before noon Thursday, lifeline paramedics flew a 10 month* old infant, who suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns, to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital
The infant pulled an electric bottle warmer onto himself around 11:30 a.m. while in the care of the Summit High School child care center, according to Spring Hill authorities. The school offers childcare services to employees.
“The water scalded his skin, and he suffered pretty significant burns to his head, neck and chest, ” Spring Hill Fire Chief Terry Hood said.
Vanderbilt LifeFlight emergency helicopter landed at the school and transported the infant and his mother to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.
*An earlier version of this story reported the child’s age as 3 months, which was based on incorrect information.
