Baby Suffers Burns On Both Legs From Apartment BBQ

6-month-old in critical condition

ANAHEIM (CBS) — A 6-month-old baby was seriously burned Monday when flames from a barbecue reached her stroller, authorities said.

Firefighters were called to an apartment complex in the 1100 block of Onondaga Avenue at 2:23 p.m., said Maria Sabol of the Anaheim Fire Department, who said the infant suffered burns on both legs.

Sabol said the stroller was about four feet away from the barbecue but it was not immediately clear how the accident occurred. A nearby plastic table was also burned, she said.

A man — who one witness identified as the baby’s father — also was hurt, but his injuries did not appear to be serious, according to reports from the scene.

Sabol, citing a preliminary estimate, said the baby suffered burns over at least 20 percent of both legs.

The witness said the child’s condition was described at the scene as critical, though Sabol said could not confirm the report.

    It amazes me that people can find their way north across the border and can’t light a grill

      @Zem Well it amazes me how you think you know who they are and where they come from. To get that opinion from this article is ridiculous!

    • TK

      How do you know where they came from?! Doesn’t even mention the family’s name. And even if their name was mentioned you still can’t assume who they are or where they’re from! Anyone, any race can be stupid like this. Take you…

  • papa

    yery,very STUPID PARENT, to have the baby so close to a bbq. i really wonder what race they were.

    • KAK

      Stupid parent, yes, but why wonder about their race? Makes no sense at all people! Stupid is stupid no matter who you are!

    • PL

  • Freddy
