An 10-month-old child died Wednesday after being burned, investigators said.

Pasadena police said the child suffered burns from scalding water at a home in the 2000 block of North Memorial Court near Dabney about 2:45 p.m. on Wednesday.

The child died after being taken to Bayshore Hospital, investigators said. The child's identity has not been released.

Police are working to determine if the burns were intentional or accidental.

Authorities obtained a search warrant to investigate inside the home Wednesday night.

Police said the parents did not call 911, but rather took the boy straight to the hospital. Medical workers called police to inform them about the burns, police said.
