A young woman suffered serious burn injuries after a waiter poured boiling water on her because she complained, police in China said.

Wenzhou police said that the 29-year-old woman identified as Lin, was eating at Mr. Hot Pot on Sunday, when the incident occurred.

According to the police investigation, Lin was having dinner at the restaurant with family members when she got into an argument with the waiter.

The 17-year-old waiter identified as Zhu, went to the kitchen and brought out a bowl of boiling water. He proceeded to pour the entire bowl of water on the woman’s face and body.

Surprisingly, he pulled the woman back from her chair, banging her head against a counter in the restaurant and the floor before kicking her.

Two women who ate dinner with the victim, immediately rushed to her aid. He continued trying to attack the woman, even after six people tried to pull him away.

Lin was rushed to a hospital for emergency treatment.

Photographs show severe injuries to the woman’s skin. Most burns appear to be restricted to the face, neck, shoulders and back.

Her condition is stable, but she will likely require additional treatment. Police have arrested and detained Zhu, who admitted to the act.
