TWO babies have been admitted at the Nadi Hospital for burns they suffered while having breakfast at home.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the cases were classic cases of parental carelessness.

"We cannot really over-emphasise the issue of parents and guardians keeping their children safe in light of the current situation around the country," IP Sokomuri said.

"Yesterday (Wednesday), two reports were received of a two-year-old and a one-year and two-month-old baby from Nadi getting burnt."

He said an electric kettle filled with hot water fell on a two-year-old in Dratabu Village while in Waqadra, the one-year two-month-old baby was scalded when a hot cup of tea fell on him.

They are admitted in a stable condition in Nadi Hospital's Burns Unit.

Insp Sokomuri said parents must take care.
