Blanchett Jets Burned Son Back To Britain

CATE BLANCHETT has rushed back to Britain with her young son after he was burned in an accident in Morocco.

Blanchett - who's shooting her new movie BABEL alongside BRAD PITT in the African country - travelled with one-year-old ROMAN to a Marrakech hospital following the incident on Sunday (15MAY05).

However, worried Blanchett loaned a private jet to whisk her child to a top burns specialist in London.

Her publicist LISA KASTELER says, "Roman had an accident and he's being treated for a minor burn. He's not on a drip. He's still being treated and Cate is with him.

"I think Cate will return to Morocco in a few days. She's almost finished filming."

It's not known exactly how little Roman sustained his injury.

Blanchett celebrated her 36th birthday with screenwriter husband ANDREW UPTON and sons DASHIELL, three, and Roman in Marrakech on Saturday (14MAY05).
