An 11-year-old Pennsylvania boy is at this time in a medically induced coma after a fight in a schoolyard with classmates according to a report from ABC News on Feb. 7. The boy's family feel they were bullying him. Bailey O'Neil is a sixth-grader and honor student at Darby Township School in Darby Township, Pa. He was involved in a fight four weeks ago where he was struck several times in the face by another student. The hit left Bailey with a fractured nose and he fell to the ground.
After the altercation, his parents took their son to the A.I. DuPont Hospital in Wilmington, Del. Bailey had a concussion and was treated by a doctor and released. After the boy returned home, his father felt that something wasn't quite right with his son.
“He was sleeping. He was moody. He wasn’t himself. He was angry a little bit. He wasn’t really eating,” Rob, Bailey’s father told ABC Affiliate WPVI-TV.
A few days after the fight, Bailey began having violent seizures and he was admitted to the hospital. The doctors at A.I. DuPont felt that the seizures were so bad that they put him into a medically induced coma two weeks ago.
When ABCNews.com contacted the Southeast Delco School District, Superintendent Stephen Butz stated that the school had turned the matter over to the local police and they are fully cooperating with their efforts. The boy who struck Bailey was suspended for two days after the altercation according to Bailey's father. Police have not filed any criminal charges in the investigation.
