Dominick family stated that he is in a serious condition now, as he was the victim of the bullies.
After the brutally bullying, Dominick Krankall was hospitalized with second and third-degree burns after a bully allegedly poured a tennis ball in gasoline, set it on fire, and tossed it at him.
He was playing in his family’s backyard when a neighbor’s youngster summoned him to another part of the yard and around a corner.
And moments later he came racing around the corner, shouting, “Mommy, they lit me on fire!”
Photos of Dominick Krankall, a six-year-old boy from Bridgeport, Connecticut, on Go Fund Me are extremely heartbreaking to watch. According to family relatives, he was set on fire by a bully who has a history of torturing him.
According to WNBC News, the small youngster is now in the hospital with second and third-degree burns to his face and legs.
On Sunday, the accused bully, an 8-year-old neighbor, allegedly procured gasoline and lighters, ignited a ball on fire, and hurled it at Dominick.
Dominick’s sister Kayla writes on her brother’s GoFundMe page that the little kid was left to die after the incident.
Dominick’s entire body is now swelled and bandaged after sustaining second and third-degree burns to his face and legs on Sunday.
Kayla claimed her brother was playing in the backyard of their home off Louisiana Avenue with other children who live below them in the afternoon.
“As soon as he stepped down the steps, the bully yelled his name and enticed him over to the corner. And in a matter of seconds, he rushed back screaming, saying, ‘Mommy, they lit me on fire,'” Deegan explained.
She said that an 8-year-old neighbor broke into a shed on the property and obtained gasoline and lighters. That’s when the youngster summoned Deegan’s younger brother.
“What he did was pour gasoline on a tennis ball, take a lighter, fire it up, and just toss it right in front of my brother’s face. And then ran away from him and watched him burn,” Deegan explained.
Dominick was brought to Bridgeport Hospital’s burn unit shortly before 4 p.m. Police stated Tuesday that they are looking into preliminary allegations of four unaccompanied youngsters who were spotted playing with gasoline and setting items on fire.
According to hospital officials, the kid is likely to recover. Dominick is fortunate to have survived the attack, but what happened to him has enraged loved ones, who claim that this isn’t the first time the accused bully has placed him in the hospital.
Dominick Krankall, a six-year-old boy was burned by a bully and left to die on a shed in Bridgeport, CT.
In a police complaint, authorities stated that “up to four unattended youngsters were spotted playing with gasoline and igniting stuff on fire.”
“The event is now under investigation by the Bridgeport Officers, Bridgeport Fire, and State Fire Investigation Teams as to the exact cause of the burn injuries.”
According to the report, neither the 8-year-old nor his family is identified publicly. But the victim’s family is aware of the suspect as this was not the first time he was bullied brutally.
“Under the supervision of the bully’s mother, he was shoved against a wall and collapsed to the floor two months ago. And, once again, the mother refuses to recognize that her child committed the crime “Deegan stated.
When contacted at their house, the family of the other youngster refused to comment on the event.
Dominick’s family is upset and seeking answers as a result of the occurrence. Deegan stated that her brother was unable to eat, sleep, or communicate.
Dominick Krankall’s family members have posted images of him in his hospital bed, totally bandaged and surrounded by toy animals and Spider-Man dolls.
The younger victim is so terrified that he begged his mother Rua not to take him back there. According to Rua, his entire body is swelled with blisters, and “his face is nearly double the size it typically is.”
On his Go Fund Me website, his sister posted an update on his condition and thanked everyone for their love and support. She stated, “Dominick is getting along a little better.”
“He was able to get a few bits of food past his severely swollen lips and into his mouth for the first time yesterday. He could only take a few bites, but that’s fantastic news. He’ll also drink soup through a straw.”
The family has so far raised $279,530, and we hope that figure will rise so that the child can receive appropriate treatment.
