ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) -

Police in Rock Hill are investigating after an infant was transported to the burn center with severe injuries after being placed too close to a heater, a police report states.

According to a Rock Hill Police report, officers were called to meet with an employee from the Department of Social Services on Sunday afternoon.

The social worker told officers that Carolinas Medical Center staff informed her that an infant had to be transferred to the burn center in Raleigh with severe burns on his arms and legs.

According to the report, the baby was injured while laying in a car seat in the living room around 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

A sibling reportedly moved the infant next to the heater, while the baby's mother was asleep.

The infant was left in front of the heater for several minutes until he started to cry and the family noticed the burns and called 911, the report states.

The case is under investigation.
