A 1-year-old boy was burned Monday afternoon after he pulled on a hot plate on which a container of water was boiling, Hialeah Fire Department Capt. Cesar Espinosa said.
The incident took place in the 400 block of East 42nd Street.
Espinosa said the child suffered second-degree burns to his upper torso.
The boy was flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.
