A 14-year-old is accused of severely burning a 10-year-old relative by pouring hot water on the boy, and Fort Worth police say another teenager may have recorded the incident.

Police are investigat­ing whether the burn Saturday at the Fort Worth home in the 3100 block of Proctor Street was intentiona­l.

The 10-year-old was hospitaliz­ed with burns to his buttocks and foot. He was taken into protective custody and released to a relative, police said.

There have been no arrests, but the 14-year-old may face an aggravated assault charge, police said.
