UPDATE: Child Injured by Scalding Water Ruled Accidental
MIDDLETOWN -- Police have declared an incident where a child fell into a trash can filled with 160 degree water as accidental.
Emergency crews responded to 308 Curtis Street in Middletown for a report of a child burned. Upon arrival crews found 2-year-old Chrisayca Boyd with severe burns to her arms and fingers. The child was taken to Dayton Children's Hospital by CareFlight. The child is expected to be OK.
"She was immediately pulled out. We checked and found that the hot water heater was set on the highest setting and the water coming out of the spicket was 150 degrees," said Lt. Scott Reeves, from the Middletown Police Department.
Police say the child's mother, Lindsey Laird was not at home during the time of the incident but the child was being watched by family friend, Terri Jackson. Jackson told police that she filled a 13-gallon trash can with hot water and placed it in the middle of the kitchen. She then proceeded to do some dishes. Minutes later, she found the child head first in the trash can.
That family friend says she turned around to do dishes and minutes later found the child in the trash can.
Neighbors say they could hear the screams and was shocked to see all the police cruisers and fire trucks.
"As I was coming down the street I seen a lot of police cars, fire trucks and emergency trucks I had no idea what was going on," said Kenny Ray Heart.
"We heard the helicopter go so we knew it was something serious," said Edna Richardson.
Police say it's crucial when children are in the home to not have your water heater set to higher than 100 degrees.
"150 degree water will burn a child in just 2 seconds so Chrisayca wasn't in there very long but it didn't take very long unfortunately because of the temperature of the water," said Lt. Reeve.
A chart from Dayton Children's Hospital lists 100 degrees as the safest bathing temperature for both adults and kids. It only takes a second for someone to get a third degree burn from water at a temperature higher than 150 degrees.
