One night, Vanesa Herrera, from Oklahoma, put her one-year-old daughter in a walker instead of a high chair as usual. Azra, her baby, reached up to the counter and pulled the crockpot down. It opened and poured the hot meat broth onto her face, which gave her second-degree burns.
She went to a hospital in the area, but was flown to a Dallas medical center. Later, she had to return to another hospital for malnourishment.
