In a shocking act, an elderly  woman threw boiling water at a heavily pregnant teenager over an argument about the garden fence in Argentina, the Mirror reported.

63-year-old Celma Prado Bustos had arranged for some men to put up a new fence around the garden when she ended up taking portions of neighbour's garden.

Cynthia Almonte Lira, 19, along with another  neighbour got into a verbal spat with the woman at her doorway.

The matter soon escalated and the lady threw boiling water at heavily pregnant Cynthia.

When questioned by the cops, Celma claimed that it was her property and she felt under threat, hence, she wanted to ensure no one took her for a ride.

Cynthia was left in pain and shock and was taken to hospital where she was treated for burns.

She has filed a complaint against her elderly neighbour.
