LANCASTER, Pa., Feb. 13 (UPI) -- The Pennsylvania mother of a 3-year-old who sprayed himself with gasoline was charged for letting him use the pump unsupervised.

Police said they responded to a Giant gas station in Lancaster on a report from witness Gregory McCarter, who said he saw a woman show the toddler how to use the gas pump and then allowed him to use the pump unsupervised, leading the child to spray himself with gas when removing the pump, The Smoking Gun reported Wednesday.

Investigators reviewed surveillance footage of the incident, which "showed the toddler spraying himself with gasoline as he removed the pump," the police report said.

Theresa A. Moran Camara, 46, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
