Boy Gets Feet Burned
Harwich Police and Fire Rescue responded Saturday night to a report of an 11 year old child with burns to his feet.
First responders arriving at Red River Beach around 10:40 P.M. determined that the boy’s burns were serious enough that he should be taken by Medflight to a Boston area hospital.
The youth was attending a family function and while extinguishing the fire he accidently stepped on some burning embers.
The fire had been properly permitted through the Harwich Park and Recreation Department.
The boy’s condition has not been released at this time.
