In The News: Explosion Causes Injuries To Baby Girl
A small explosion in the New South Wales Hunter region last night has caused injuries to a baby girl.
Emergency services were called to a home in Raymond Terrace at 11.50pm last night after reports of the 16-month-old being burnt.
According to the ABC, the baby girl was treated for a burn on her leg and taken to John Hunter Hospital in a stable condition.
Police believe the explosion occurred when an aerosol can was thrown in an open fire, which sent hot coals flying.
Officers attending the scene said that the girls’ injuries are not life-threatening and no one else was injured in the incident.
After speaking to witnesses, Port Stephens police have also advised the ABC that no further action is anticipated in relation to this incident.
