6-Year-Old Boy Hospitalized After Bully Blasts Him With Burning Ball

6-Year-Old Boy Suffering From Burns After Bully Blasts Him With Burning Ball

No parent is ever prepared to deal with their child being bullied. There are numerous reasons why that’s the case, but nowadays it seems as though bullying is getting increasingly worse. This is evidenced by a situation that recently unfolded that saw a ruthless bully leave another child fighting for his life.

This led to parents of a 6-year-old boy from Connecticut having to unfortunately deal with a situation no parent would ever imagine themselves being in. That’s the case because a bully doused a tennis ball with gasoline prior to lighting it and throwing the burning ball at the face of Dominick Krankall. 

The incident unfolded while Krankall was playing in the backyard of his Bridgeport, CT home when the 8-year-old bully snatched gasoline and a lighter from a nearby shed. Then, the bully coaxed Krankall to come closer to him to throw the burning ball at him. Krankall’s sister, Kayla Deegan told NBC New York the boy screamed in horror just seconds later.

“As soon as he walked down the stairs, the bully called his name and lured him over around the corner. In a matter of seconds, he came back around the corner screaming, saying ‘Mommy, they lit me on fire! They lit me on fire!’,” she said.

Sadly, Deegan says this isn’t the first time the bully has tormented her little brother. She said, two months ago under the supervision of the bully’s mother, her brother was shoved into a wall, causing Dominic to fall onto the floor. Making matters worse is the fact that the bully’s mother refuses to admit that her child is responsible. Now, the family is on the hook for medical fees totalling well into the thousands. The family has started a GoFundMe to help fund his recovery.
