Lawton Police investigate possible abuse in case of scalded baby

Comanche County_Lawton Police are investigating a possible child abuse case after an eleven-month old baby was brought to the hospital with severe burns to its arms and legs.

"Currently, we are still investigating the abuse," says Lawton Police Captain Will Hines.  "As of whether this child was injured, which we understand accidents do happen, we want to make sure there is no foul play in this case."

Police referred to the injuries as "immersion burns," which are often deliberate and are common injuries after skin is submerged in a hot liquid.  Police consider these kinds of wounds suspicious, and as potential signs of abuse or neglect.

Although Lawton Police say it is possible that this was an accident, they are investigating the incident.
