Toddler burnt in battery acid spill
A CHILD has been transported to hospital after sitting in battery acid.
Emergency services responded to the incident about 8am this morning on Helen St, Pittsworth.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesperson said a roadworks sign had upended in a trailer where there were batteries, and the acid leaked out into the gutter.
A 14-month old boy is believed to have sat in the acid, sustaining minor injuries.
He was transported to Toowoomba Hospital.
