A little boy and his father have been hospitalised after suffering serious burns at a restaurant in Sydney’s southwest.
The boy, 3, and his dad, 45, were at Narellan Town Centre on Sunday when both suffered burns to their face and arms about 12.30pm, a NSW Ambulance spokesman said.
“Five crews including our aeromedical team which carries a critical care doctor and critical care paramedic attended,” he said.
“The man was transported to Concord Hospital and the boy to Westmead Children’s Hospital.”
They were both hospitalised in a serious condition.
A Westmead Children’s Hospital spokesperson on Monday told Yahoo News Australia the boy remains in a serious but stable condition.
The spokesperson confirmed the boy had been at a teppanyaki restaurant when the incident occurred.
The boy and his dad were celebrating a birthday at the restaurant when flames came off a hot plate while a chef was pouring oil on it, 7 News reported.
A NSW Police spokesman confirmed officers attended the call but it’s not expected any further action will be taken.
