Baby badly burned from garden hose water (CNN Newsource)

Nine-month-old Nicholas Woodger suffered second degree burns after he was accidentally sprayed with scalding hot water out of a garden hose.

Dominique Woodger says she was filling up a kiddie pool and accidentally sprayed the boy when she turned on the hose, CNN affiliate KNXV-TV reports.

She wants to warn others about just how hot the water in a garden hose can get during the summer heat.

The boy was rushed to a hospital where he received burns to 30-percent of his body.

"All of it was peeling. He had blisters all over the right side," the mother told KNXV.

Little Nicholas is now at home recovering.
