Toddler severely burned near park fountain
(Fox4-TV News) ROCKWALL, Texas – A mother wants the city of Rockwall to make safety changes to a popular water fountain after her toddler was severely burned.
“I was just terrified. My heart broke for her,” said Tracie Harrison.
Harrison said the plan last Wednesday was to picnic with her mom and two daughters and let the girls play in The Harbor District’s water fountain as many kids like to do. But the fountain happened to be turned off while they were there.
And about 10 minutes into the picnic her 14-month-old daughter Emily waddled off. Then the barefoot toddler fell on some metal doors that lead to the fountain’s underground pumps.
