CLEVELAND -- Cleveland police say a 1-year-old girl was submerged in scalding water this weekend at a home on the city's East Side, severely burning her.

Police told The Plain Dealer on Sunday that a 23-year-old man has been arrested on a child-endangering charge but did not release his identity.

A police report says that the girl sustained second-degree burns from the waist down Saturday afternoon.

Paramedics took her to a local hospital in serious condition.

Police have declined to release further information.
