Two children hospitalised with burns after incident at NSW home

TWO children have been rushed to hospital with burns to their face and hands following an incident at a house near Nowra in New South Wales.

Emergency services were called to the Alfred Street house at Bomaderry just after 9.30pm on Sunday.

When they arrived, they found two boys aged 9 and 11 with significant burns.


The younger boy was airlifted to the Children’s Hospital at Randwick in a serious condition with burns to his face and hands.

The older boy was found with less severe burns to his arms and hands. He was taken by ambulance to Bomaderry Hospital in a stable condition.

Police say initial investigations suggest the incident is not suspicious but is possibly the result of misadventure.

Officers from the Shoalhaven Local Area Command attended the house and established a crime scene.

Investigations into the incident are continuing.
