Second child rushed to hospital after scalding

Two children have been rushed to hospital in as many days following separate scalding incidents.

In the latest incident an 18-month-old girl has been hurt in Bowness on Windermere this afternoon. The toddler, local to the area, was scalded by a hot drink.

Medics on the Pride of Cumbria air ambulance were scrambled to help paramedics from the North West Ambulance Service at the scene before the girl was taken to hospital in Lancaster by road ambulance.

She was reported to be in a stable condition on arrival to hospital and her injuries described as non-life threatening.

Yesterday, an eight-month-old boy from Shrewsbury was flown to hospital in Newcastle to a specialist burns unit after he was scalded by a hot drink. He suffered 'severe injuries' to his chest and abdomen following the incident in a Keswick cafe.
