12-Year-Old Arrested After Dumping Boiling Water on Girl at Sleepover

10 Août 2017

An 11-year-old girl received second-degree burns after her friend poured boiling water on her at a sleepover.

NY1 News reported that 11-year-old Jamoneisha Merritt was taken to a burn unit after the friends she was with for a sleepover threw boiling water on her. Meanwhile, the victim's family members say the 11-year-old was actually bullied before this happened by the same 12-year-old girl who doused her with that scalding water.

First responders rushed her to Harlem Hospital in serious but stable condition. The scalding hot water burned the girl's face, neck, shoulders and chest, leaving her screaming in pain and agony.

Police say the 12-year-old girl who is accused in the attack has been charged with assault.

Merritt's family is devasted.

Even worse, Merritt said, the girl responsible "admitted it" and said "I don't like her.

She thought they was her friends", Merritt's mother Ebony told television station NY1.

The share of profit from joint ventures also rose considerably to USD428.0 million from USD114.0 million the year before. Adjusted EBIT surged to $3.80 billion from $875 million a year ago.

Investigators are looking into whether this crime was inspired by an apparent social media trend that's dubbed "the hot water challenge".

"She's very sad. She's emotionally messed up", Merritt's mother told NY 1.

According to the mother of Merritt, his daughter had already been intimidated by the one that attacked her: "I was told that she did not like him". And they just been bullying her. 'I don't like her.

"I could only be with her for a little bit, because I can't hold myself together", Yolanda said.

As the New York Post noted in its report, 8-year-old girl Ki'ari Pope of Florida died last month after being dared to drink boiling water through a straw by her cousin.

The victim's mother posted on social media, saying that she wants all parents to be aware of what their children are doing and to talk to them about the risky, sick stunts they see online.
