3-year-old boy burned with acid in Elizabethton

ELIZABETHTON — A 3-year-old boy received chemical burns to his abdomen and feet at midday on Wednesday when a glass soft drink bottle broke and spilled the highly acidic liquid on him.

Elizabethton Police Chief Greg Workman said 911 dispatched officers to the H Building of Lynnwood Apartments on Bluefield Avenue. Officer Sarah Ellison was the first officer on the scene.

Workman said the spilled liquid has not been identified, but said it was a strong acid, probably sulfuric or hydrochloric acid, he said.
