TX - Houston Mom & 6 year old child attacked with Acid
Houston, TX, Jul. 22 (UPI) -- Houston police searched Thursday for a man who walked into a home and poured acid on a woman and her 6-year-old son.
The 29-year-old woman and boy were asleep when they were attacked about 9:30 a.m., the Houston Chronicle reported. They were treated at LBJ Hospital.
Some of the muriatic acid got onto the woman's face and eyes, officers said. Paramedics washed the acid off the victims.
The attacker may have been a former boyfriend of the woman's sister, police said.
The man entered through an unlocked door and poured the acid on the victims in their beds. Two other children in the bed were not harmed, officers said.

Oh my gosh, that poor woman and her child.
My cousin once got burned with battery acid when his car battery exploded. His father poured milk in his eyes. The paramedics and doctors said that is what saved his eyesight. He has no visible markings from that happening.
Any word on this family and how they are coming along?
Prayers for both, Lanie
