CARELESS accidents associated with new year celebrations continue to happen and parents are being asked to keep a close watch on the actions and whereabouts of their children.

This was the message issued yesterday by the Fiji Police Force following an incident on Saturday morning concerning a 13-year-old who received burns from a bamboo gun.

"The victim was lighting the bamboo gun in front of their family house with his younger brother when the kerosene inside splashed on him and as a result, his clothes caught fire," explained police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro.

"The victim sustained burns and was taken to the Nausori Health Centre before being transferred to the CWM Hospital."
