A Philadelphia sixth-grader who was formerly in a coma due to injuries he sustained from a fight died after being taken off life support.

Bailey O’Neill died Sunday morning, one day after his twelfth birthday.

He suffered a concussion, broken nose and numerous other injuries in a fight at Darby Township School on January 10th. Doctors put him into a medically induced coma after he began having seizures.
