“I heard my son’s loud, painful scream. When I rushed to the kitchen, I saw him in the hot vessel of 8 litres of boiling milk. I quickly pulled him out, but the damage was already done. His skin was peeling off from his body as he cried out in excruciating pain,” – Mohan, father
3-year-old Hitesh was playing in the house when he tripped on a toy and fell into the big vessel of boiling milk in the kitchen. He is now in the ICU, fighting for his life. His body is 40% burnt and he needs to stay in the ICU longer to survive this terrible accident, but his parents have nothing left to save him.
Many hospitals refused to treat the little one
“I was gone only for a minute. I saw that he was playing and went to the other room to get something. Just then, he had gone to the kitchen. It was a terrifying sight.” – Mohan
Mohan and his mother, Parvathamma wrapped Hitesh in a cloth and rushed him to the nearest hospital on their scooter from Somaladoddi village to Anantapur. After boiling the leftover milk from their dairy, Hitesh’s mother, Radha, had taken their younger daughter to the doctor since she had a fever. Radha was devastated when she found out what happened, what was worse, many hospitals even refused to treat him. Mohan wasted no time and immediately took him to Bangalore in an ambulance.
