UPDATE: An Elmwood Park toddler was hospitalized with burns Wednesday morning after accidentally knocking a cup of hot tea onto himself at the kitchen table, Police Chief Michael Foligno said.

"My baby is fine," the boy's mother said. "It was an accident."

The boy -- only a month short of 2 years old -- was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center after being injured around 9 a.m. at Washington Avenue and Mola Boulevard, Foligno said.

A medical chopper was initially requested and then canceled in favor of an ambulance.
