WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Wichita police say a 5-year-old girl is recovering after a man poured boiling water on her as punishment.

Police say the relative was watching the girl Saturday at a home in southwest Wichita.

Lt. Doug Nolte says the man became upset when the girl took food into the living room and poured a pan of boiling water on her.

The girl did not receive immediate medical attention. Nolte says the girl's father came to pick her up later in the day, noticed the injuries and took her to a hospital. She was treated for 2nd-degree burns to her back, face and arms.

No arrests were made as of Monday. The child's name has not been released.
