BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore police are investigating the scalding death of a one-month-old baby girl.
Detectives were called to a home in the 500 block of E. Patapsco Avenue on Wednesday for a report of a sick child.
When they arrived, police found one-month-old Elisha Watson with burns across 80 percent of her body. The newborn was taken to an hospital, where she later died.
The child’s parents told investigators the baby was accidentally burned while they were trying to give her a bath.
So far, no charges have been filed.
