6-year-old Boy Burned by Old Faithful Waters
Yellowstone National Park, WY – A 6-year-old boy was burned in Yellowstone National Park after he slipped on a wet boardwalk and fell into hot water in the Old Faithful area.
Park officials say the boy's arms and legs were burned in the fall near Grand Geyser around six p-m Saturday.
The boy was taken to the Old Faithful Clinic and stabilized, then was driven by ambulance to the airport at West Yellowstone, Montana. From there he was flown to the burn center at the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City.
His condition has NOT been released and park officials are NOT releasing the boy's name.
Park officials say the boy is from South Jordan, Utah. He'd arrived in Yellowstone with his parents and two siblings earlier in the day.
