CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A 1-year-old boy from Charlotte suffered extreme burns all over his body after boiling apple cider dumped on him.
Remy Linkous pulled a crock pot of hot apple cider off a kitchen counter on December 20, WSOC reported. The accident resulted in 2nd and 3rd degree burns covering his head, neck, shoulder, arms and legs.
The toddler was life-flighted to Baptist Hospital in Charlotte before getting transferred to Shriner’s Hospital in Chincinnati. He’s expected to stay for several more weeks.
Remy will require additional therapy, possible plastic surgery, and additional follow-up care for at least the next two years.
However, he’s now sitting up and smiling.
Donors have raised nearly $50,000 for Remy’s medical bills. His family continues to update his condition online.
