Bullied boy dies after punch at school

(SFGATE) — GLENOLDEN, Pa. (AP) — A sixth-grader who was injured in an altercation with another boy at school two months ago was taken off life support and died, and his suburban school district on Monday made extra counselors available to fellow students.

Bailey O’Neill, who had just turned 12, died Sunday morning, family members said.

He had suffered a concussion, a broken nose and other injuries during the encounter with the boy at Darby Township School, in suburban Philadelphia, on Jan. 10. He later began having seizures, and doctors induced a coma.
