Toddler sustains burns to hands and feet

5 October 2021

A toddler has sustained burns to his hands and feet after walking on the embers of a campfire at an Elanora Heights home yesterday afternoon.

The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked shortly before 3:00pm and landed 10 minutes later at the property where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment for the boy.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic conducted a clinical assessment on the patient, including an ultrasound, and administered pain relief.

CareFlight’s medical team provided ongoing observation for the boy as he was taken by road with NSW Ambulance to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in a stable condition.
