Badly burned infant airlifted from Talamancas

Pilots from the Dirección del Servicio de Vigilancia Aérea carried a badly burned 2-month old from the high Talamanca mountains to Pavas Wednesday so the child could be treated at the Hospital Nacional de Niños.

Security officials said that the child was badly burned when a pot of boiling water overturned. The location, Guayabal, is difficult to reach on the ground, so an ambulance flight was arranged.
