Baby's Carrier Catches Fire in Seconds

A mother took her 5-month-old baby girl out to run errands with her. Once home, she placed her baby down while she was still in her protective car see. Only a few minutes later, her baby was awash in flames.

The incident is now under investigation, so the names of the Canadian parents are being withheld. They did immediately call the fire department who arrived to put out the flames. Their baby was quickly transferred to a hospital in Victoriaville.

Sadly, the baby's burns were so deep that she had to be transferred to a better-equipped hospital in Montreal. The father's hands were also severely burned, and the mother went into a medical state of shock.

What happened is the mother accidentally set her daughter down on a lit stove with an open flame. A fire started in only seconds, making it extremely difficult to get her daughter out of the seat belt.

Doctors now expect her baby to survive, but they are not sure how the burns will affect her development.
