TAYLORSVILLE, Utah (AP) -- A four-year-old Taylorsville boy is recovering from second-degree burns after he fell into hot asphalt.

The incident happened on Tuesday in the 4400 South block of Heatherglen Court.

Taylorsville police Sergeant Rosie Rivera said the boy was riding his bike when he crashed and fell into freshly poured asphalt. A worker grabbed the boy and poured water on his burns.

Rivera said the asphalt was about 200 degrees at the time. The boy suffered second-degree burns to his hands and shins.
