The 8-year old boy who attacked her son also lives at the apartment complex. The complex’s management said they weren’t aware of the crime.
“The burns were so bad that they had to go in immediately and do surgery that they had to scrape his face and all of his skin,” Lyons said. source
Doctors say Julien’s internal organs were also impacted.
“We really don’t know because he inhaled the flames, that the smoke deteriorated inside his nostrils,” Lyons said. “It will take three to six months to find out if the lungs could still collapse, if we`re going to have to do skin grafts.”
