Update: 12:43PM POLICE are requesting parents and guardians to seek immediate medical attention if a child gets injured instead of resorting to natural remedies.

This, after a one-year-old died in Nadi yesterday.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the child's father applied home remedies after the child allegedly got scalded by hot water from an electric kettle at 10am yesterday.

The child was later rushed to the Nadi Hospital but pronounced dead on arrival.

Investigations are continuing.
