A 2-year-old from Inkster has been killed after he was found submerged in scalding hot water in a Jacuzzi tub.

The boy was found at around 7:00 p.m. in an upstairs bathroom of a home in the 26000 block of Avondale. He was immediately rushed to Beaumont Hospital in Dearborn.

Police were called to the scene on reports of a child who was not breathing. When officers arrived, EMS crews were already working on the boy.

Those officers then escorted the ambulance to the hospital.

Police say the mother is in custody.
