A Ross toddler was treated at UPMC Mercy on Monday after being burned with hot water at his home, township Detective Brian Kohlhepp said.

Police were called around 6:45 p.m. to the home on Russell Drive after the boy, believed to be about 1, pulled a pot of hot water off the stove, Kohlhepp said. The boy's father, who was standing nearby, grabbed the pot but some water splashed on the boy, the detective said.

The boy suffered what appeared to be first- and second-degree burns over about 30 percent of his body, Kohlhepp said.
