A Greensboro baby is clinging to life after an accident with hot coffee.

Gadsden County first responders say the one-year old boy who lives on the 6-thousand block of Flat Creek Road was life-flighted to T-M-H then to Shands this morning 3/14 for first and second degree burns.

Deputies say the boy reached for a pot of hot coffee and spilled it on himself. First responders say close to 60-percent of his body is burned. Officials say he is in serious condition.

Investigators tell us no charges will be filed because they have no reason to suspect neglect and it was simply an accident.
