SAN TAN VALLEY, AZ. – Pool safety is often stressed each year as summer approaches, but what about water hose safety? A Phoenix mother wants to warn other parents about the danger of a water hose on a hot day to prevent any other children being injured like her 9-month-old son was on Tuesday.
Area temperatures reached around 110 degrees that day, so Dominique Woodger decided to to take her son out to spend some time cooling off in his small wading pool. She sat him down in the pool as she fetched the hose to fill the pool.
Woodger told ABC Channel 15 in Arizona that she turned on the water to fill the small pool and the water sprayed out hitting the child.
He cried out but she did not immediately realize the reason for his cry, thinking he may have just been upset by the water hitting him in the face. After looking over her son’s body she noticed that his skin was peeling and blistering.
The 9-month-old child is expected to fully recover.
