Burn victim questioned over events leading up to incident

POLICE expect to interview Sunrise Beach burns victim Isaac Stearn today about events leading up to his injuries.

The 14-year-old St Teresa's Catholic College student was rushed to Lady Cilento Children's Hospital on October 31 by RACQ CareFlight Helicopter with extensive burns to his hands, torso, arms and shoulders.

He was placed in an induced coma and has since undergone a series of operations and grafts to repair the damage caused by the second and third-degree burns.

Detective Senior Sergeant Phil Hurst of the Child Protection Investigation Unit said police had hoped to interview Isaac on Friday but that would now be done today.

Police have no further information about the events leading up to Isaac being found screaming for help at the doorstep of a Sunrise Beach unit at about 6.30pm on Saturday, October 31.

Det Snr Sgt Hurst said none of the information received from the public had shed light on the matter.

Isaac faces a lengthy hospital stay followed by at least 18 months of rehabilitation.
