CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A 23-year-old man is charged with child endangering after a toddler was scalded in the bathtub.

Records show Lamont Turner was watching an 18-month-old child when he ran bath water and put the child in without checking it. The child suffered burns on over 5% of their body.

Paramedics found the child around 4:10 p.m. Saturday when they responded to a report of an "unconscious" toddler on the 3900 block of Longwood Avenue in Cleveland.

EMS rushed the child to the hospital to receive treatment for the serious burn injuries.

No word on Turner's first court appearance at this time.
