Emergency crews were called to a location off Hooker Boulevard at Broadbeach Waters around 12.30pm, following reports a child had suffered burns.

A Queensland Ambulance spokesperson said the youngster appears to have been scalded by a hot liquid, believed to be soup.


She was treated at the scene by paramedics for burns to her neck, face, chest and arm before being taken to Gold Coast University Hospital.
