Garden Weather Warning

⚠️ Attention ⚠️

I’ve wanted to cry every time I’ve seen this photo but it’s important to share.

I know the weather is a bit rubbish today but apparently another heatwave is on the way ☀️

Please please read this and take note…

2 years ago this baby suffered 2nd degree burns over 30% of his body from being accidentally sprayed with a garden hose and firefighters have issued a fresh warning recently.

👨‍🚒Hoping to prevent this type of accident from happening again, the fire department warned:

🚿 ‘’A garden hose exposed to direct sunlight during summer can heat the water inside the hose (not flowing) to 130-140 degrees Fahrenheit which can cause burns especially to children & animals.

✅ Let the water flow a few minutes to cool before spraying on people or animals”

It’s not something people would immediately think of but with the unusually hot weather lately, it’s worth sharing.
