Boy, 12, dies after fight at school

GLENOLDEN, Pa. (AP) — A Philadelphia-area boy has been taken off life support weeks after suffering injuries in a fight at school.

WPVI-TV reports family members say Bailey O’Neill died Sunday morning, a day after he turned 12. That was several weeks after the sixth-grader suffered a concussion, broken nose and other injuries in a fight at school on Jan. 10.

Doctors later put him in a medically induced coma after he began having seizures.

Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan says his office has been investigating what happened in the fight, which occurred at Darby Township School. Police describe it as a one-on-one altercation, which was caught on tape.

Southeast Delco School District Superintendent Stephen D. Butz has said the district is cooperating with the investigation.

And these boys got a whopping 2 days suspension. That's justice.

Suggest removal:
