Bullied student scalded in hot water attack
NEW ORLEANS - A charter school student suffered severe burns after his family said bullies attacked him with scalding water after football practice in New Orleans recently.
The student suffered second-degree burns and needed skin grafts. He said other kids who were bullying him came up to him while the was waiting for his grandfather to pick him up Tuesday, then threw water on him and ran away laughing.
"He had went into the office, got hot water and said: 'coach said come get some water'. I told him [I'm] not going in there. They threw it on me. Started laughing and then they ran," the 8th grader told WWL-TV.
The family says they were told the student who threw the boiling water would be moved to an alternative school. The NOPD is also investigating, and told the family battery charges could possibly be filed against that student.
