Toddler suffers horrific burns after pulling cup of hot tea off a bench
A toddler has been left with horrific burns after pulling a hot cup of tea from a bench just days before her mother was set to walk down the aisle to marry her high school sweetheart.
Bride-to-be Naomi Watson was finalising the last minute details for her wedding day when 20-month-old Sophie got seriously injured.
The mother of two said her daughter was 'exploring, as babies do' when she pulled a freshly made cup of tea from the bench, spilling it all over her body and damaging her delicate skin.
