MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Two Colquitt County parents are accused of abusing their little boy, but quick action by a babysitter may have saved the boy's life.     

Amanda and Colt Chaney are charged with two counts of cruelty to a child.      

Colquitt County Sheriff's investigators say the Chaney's asked a 32-year-old neighbor to watch Colt Chaney's 3-year-old son at their home on Rosencrants Drive while the couple went to Albany Saturday.      

The babysitter noticed young Carson was irritable and then found third degree burns on the child's chest, back, and left leg.      

Carson was transported to Colquitt County Medical Center where doctors told investigators without treatment the child may have died.      

He is in critical condition.
