"Police: Man playing with matches burns 7-year-old"

Very strange, if it indeed happened this way.
SAN ANTONIO -- A 7-year-old is recovering from burns on his chest after police say an adult who was playing with matches burned the child. The boy reportedly showed a family member the burn and told how it happened.


Investigators told News 4 WOAI the boy's stepfather offered the 7-year-old money to put out the match with his finger or his mouth. When the boy refused, police said the stepfather threw the hot match at him.

"The unlit match landed on his chest and burned him," Officer Rios told News 4 WOAI.

Police say the little boy was in pain when it happened and was told not to say anything.
