Bullying Attack Leaves Bailly O’Neil 11 Year Old in Coma

February 8, 2013 - 1,377 views

According to ABC News an 11-year-old Pennsylvania boy has been placed in a medically induced coma after a school fight with students who he claims were bullying him. Sixth-grader Baily O’Neil, an honors student, of Darby Township, Pa., was involved in a fight four weeks ago at the Darby Township School. He was struck several times in the face by another student; the blow fractured his nose and he fell to the ground.

His parents brought their son, who had a concussion, to the A.I. DuPont hospital in Wilmington, Del., where he was treated and released. But his father saw that something wasn’t quite right with their son when they returned home.

“He was sleeping. He was moody. He wasn’t himself. He was angry a little bit. He wasn’t really eating,” Bailey’s father Rob told ABC Affiliate WPVI-TV.

Just a few days later, Bailey started having violent seizures and needed to be hospitalized again. The seizures were so bad that doctors at A.I. DuPont were forced to put Bailey in a medically induced coma nearly two weeks ago.

When contacted, A.I. DuPont Hospital was unable to provide an update to ABC News on Bailey’s current condition because of privacy laws. His father is trying his best to cope.

Today his father is speaking out, warning other parents. “Every day I’m trying to stay strong for him,” he told WPVI-TV. “When you get into that hospital room and you’re looking at him, I would trade places in a heartbeat. It’s my buddy, you know.”

Local police are investigating the incident. Bailey’s father says the boy who hit his son was suspended for two days but police have not filed any charges.
