UPDATE: Baby Scalded From Hot Bath Water

DAYTON -- A toddler is recovering after being put in a scorching hot bath.

Investigators say a 1 year old was rushed to the hospital Wednesday morning after his caregiver forgot to check the temperature before dipping him in the bathtub. Investigators say a caregiver was watching several children and became distracted.

"We regard any issue suspicious when we are unable to absolutely identify the source of the issue immediately, "Det. Larry Tolpin, Dayton PD SVU told us on the scene Wednesday. "It's only on the feet. It is consistent with that chain of events."

Even if deemed an accident, the person responsible could be looking at a charge of negligence.

This story is an opportunity to provide a quick reminder to everyone.

Health care professionals say bath water temperature should be between 90 to 100 degrees.

You should use a thermometer to check the water before putting the child in the tub. If you don't have one on hand, use your elbow or the back of your wrist which would react like a child's skin.

Remember to never put a child in the water while it's still running.

And don't forget to swirl the water so the temperature is even; preventing hot and cold areas.



Earlier coverage:

DAYTON - A 1-year-old is in the hospital with burns after he was given a hot bath.

The lead investigator with Dayton SVU says a close relative of the victim was watching several children when this happened.

We're told the caregiver was overwhelmed and forgot to check the temperature of the water before placing the infant in the tub. A mistake investigators at this time are calling suspicious.

"We are unable to absolutely identify the source of the issue immediately. We're obviously not able to speak to an infant so we have to investigate to clarify what happened here," said Det. Larry Tolpin, Dayton PD SVU.

Investigators say the burns are only on the infants feet and are not life threatening.

Investigators tell us the person responsible for his burns could be facing charges of negligence.

The investigation is still open.
