Toddler suffers horrific burns after drinking sulfuric acid
A three-year-old boy in China is suffering
from horrific burns after accidentally swallowing sulphuric acid. The toddler who is currently being treated
in hospital was playing outside when he drank from a bottle he found on the floor. His mother said that a few minutes after she
let him, he came running home crying and foaming at the mouth. She immediately took him to hospital where
doctors identified that he drank concentrated sulphuric acid. He can’t chew or swallow anything. The milk
and medicine are fed via a tube in his stomach and his mouth was totally burnt. The three-year-old’s mouth and neck have been
severely burned and doctors are working to find out the extent of the damage.
