The family spokesperson on behalf of Bailey O’Neill's family has reached out to the Newark Bereavement and Parenting Examiner on March 5. The administrator of the “Building Hope for Bailey” fan page on Facebook has shared more information to clear all the inconsistencies to earlier media reports currently in circulation.
The parents of the 12-year old boy, who was the victim of an alleged school bullying altercation between two school mates, did not die at the A.I. DuPont Hospital for uncontrolled seizures.
The family spokesperson stated, "He was not battered when brought to the hospital. He went to A.I. DuPont first because he was not acting right. There, he had his first seizure and they never stopped."
"It was there where O'Neill was put in a coma and stayed for three weeks," the spokesperson continued in the interview.
Towards the end of the interview statement, "He was then transported to Children's to receive additional treatment. That is where he died."
Bailey O’Neill died at CHOP on March 3.
The out pour of support for the whole family at the “Building Hope for Bailey” Facebook fan page continues; they are grateful for the prayers and support during this difficult time.
All donations will go to assist with burial and personal expenses while the O’Neill family works through their complicated grief.
Additionally, Bailey's mother Jina Risoldi, is understandably heartbroken; no mother should have to bury a child for this reason.
Please visit their web page and help support the family and fight against school bullying.
