A 13-month-old girl has been flown to hospital in a stable condition after falling into a fire at an outdoor event at a property in South Maroota this afternoon.

The child’s mother suffered serious burns to the hands pulling the girl from the open fire pit. 

CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked to help by NSW Ambulance at 2.06pm and the team reached the patient at 2.23pm. 

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic treated the child for burns to the leg and provided pain relief. CareFlight’s doctor also treated the mother, who was initially treated by a NSW Ambulance crew who arrived by road. 

The baby was flown to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead in stable condition, accompanied by her father. 

NSW Ambulance transported the mother by road to hospital in a stable condition.
