A boiler accident in an elementary school caused severe head-to-toe burns to a first grader, who by innocently flushing a toilet potentially averted a larger explosion. The Sun investigated the cause of her accident, and uncovered widespread technical problems plaguing the aging boilers in more than 40 Baltimore city schools. (Sept. 15, 16, 27, 29; Oct. 11, 1996)
