McCammonwho was the victim of a tragic hot water burn
accident. Several days before her first birthday, her grandmother left her
in an empty bathtub for only a minute while she went to answer the phone. During
that time, Leah attempted to pull herself up using the hot water faucet
handle. The force of 140°F water knocked her down and caused third-degree
burns over most of her body. She was air-lifted to Shriners Hospital
for Children, which specializes in pediatric intensive burn care. She died
several days later.
