CORSICANA, Texas - A Corsicana child is dead after a pot of boiling water fell on her.
Police say 42-year-old Juana Marquez called them on Saturday about an unresponsive 4-year-old girl in a home on South 34th Street.
Marquez reportedly told officers the girl pulled the pot off the stove and several parts of her body were scalded. They say she tried treating the girl on her own and did not go to the hospital.
She now faces felony charges for abandoning or endangering a child.
