“My 6-year-old son looked at me and he said, ‘Daddy, he poured gasoline on a ball and he threw it directly into my face and he caught my face on fire with a fireball,'” the boy’s father, Aaron Krankall, stated.
The incident occurred Sunday afternoon.
Dominick Krankall was enjoying within the yard with the 8- and 11-year-old sons of a close-by household.
“There was no bullying, whatsoever, involved. None,” Laura Giacobbe stated.
Giacobbe stated Dominick’s mom, Maria Rua, had agreed to keep watch over the boys whereas she went out.
In some unspecified time in the future, a gasoline can was taken from a shed and a tennis ball was set on fireplace.
“She neglected these children outside. She neglected them. If your child is being bullied, would you leave your child out with somebody being bullied? That’s the question,” Giacobbe stated.
“They can go outside, they’ll be playing basketball for 5 or 10 minutes, and everything seems grand, and then maybe 10, 15 minutes goes by and someone gets pushed, someone gets tripped, someone gets hurt. And this has been going on and on and I am so sick of it,” Aaron Krankall stated.
Dominick was being handled for second and third-degree burns to his face and leg.
His father stated final month Dominick suffered a concussion after being pushed by the identical 8-year-old little one.
“I will not stop, though, until this kid gets put away because this is not okay. I need justice for my son,” Aaron Krankall stated.
There’s a safety digicam that overlooks that yard and a part of this incident was captured on surveillance video which police are reviewing as their investigation continues.
