An Oklahoma mother watched in horror as the burns her children suffered while playing outside at a daycare developed into blisters that sent them to the hospital.
Shaunna Broadway, 26, of Vinita, enrolled her children in Happiness Is a Learning Center, but has now filed a police report after they were taken to a local mini water park and not given sunscreen.
Her children Conner Harvey, 7, and his brother Tray Wells, 5, have become covered in blisters from the burns they received, and taken to a hospital out of state after the skin issues escalated to dangerous levels.
Broadway, a single working mother, took them to a Tulsa hospital but was told around 2am Monday morning that the kids needed to be flown immediately to Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Galveston, Texas, because of the severity of the burns.
Tray has second-degree sunburns while his brother Conner, who has paler skin and red hair, has third-degree burns.
The children’s grandfather Wayne Broadway told Daily Mail Online that the burnt skin had been removed from both the boys and that they were now in wraps that were being changed regularly.
Skin grafts have been discussed as a possibility if the condition of the burns does not improve, he said.
The elder Broadway is heading down to Galveston Tuesday morning to be with his daughter, who has faced the challenge alone with her boys.
She watched as the burns, sustained Friday, developed into blisters that caused her sons excruciating pain that was not eased with traditional creams.
‘Apparently the swelling and pain on his back was so bad that he was having pressure on his chest,’ she told Buzzfeed.
