Bailey O’NeillDelco, Pennsylvania — Bailey O’Neill, a sixth-grader at Darby Township School, is in a medically induced coma after being in a schoolyard fight.

There isn’t a lot on this one since it’s an ongoing investigation with all parties being minors.

Bailey was reportedly in a schoolyard fight last month that resulted in a broken nose and a concussion. The boy was taken to the hospital by his parents and was given the all-clear and sent home. Once home, however, he didn’t want to eat, had mood swings and started having violent seizures.

Doctors at A.I. duPont Hospital for Children were forced to put the boy into a medically induced coma more than three weeks ago.

“Every day I’m trying to stay strong for him, but when you get into that hospital room and you’re looking at him, I would trade places in a heartbeat. It’s my buddy, you know,” said Rob O’Neill, the boy’s father.

According to the boy’s father, Bailey got in a fight with two bullies, but only one of them was suspended. The police became involved in this matter after the school district asked to have the matter investigated. The school district’s attorney commented: “We are reviewing the bullying issue to determine if it did occur, or if it was a fight in the schoolyard.”

No charges have been laid so far but the Superintendent for the school district cannot comment on the disciplinary actions to be taken once the investigation is finished.

I don’t quite have an opinion on this one since there’s too much that can’t be said. All I know is that I hope Bailey heals up so he can play catch with his daddy.

    That’s pretty screwed up. Anytime I read these stories involving kids, I think of my kids. I don’t know what I’d do if I were his mom. I don’t believe in vigilante justice, but it’d be awfully difficult to not track down those little shits who beat him so badly and give them a taste of their own medicine.

    What the hell? That poor kid, and his poor family! And I bet the little assholes get away with it! I had to go crazy last week in an email to my kids’ principal because one was being bullied and when he slipped out of class early to avoid it, he got a detention. Once I found out why he did it, I told them he did not have a detention, and the principal interrogated him, called him a liar, and then started playing on her phone when he cried. I do not sit down for that shit! I called her a bully, and wrote a nasty letter and got shit done. And it was a letter because I do not trust myself to go up there, bitches start calling the cops when I get angry…Ain’t nobody got time fo’ prison!

    “… medically induced coma …” is still not a good enough excuse for over-due library books. At return time, the librarian always gave me an evil look and said, “we had that book on tape.”

  • daMonBrooks

    Even if it was a bullying based fight…..just sad for everyone.
    Here’s to no future neurological issues kid.

  • Sam

    The saddest part is, bullying will always be around. I really don’t think there’s a way to eradicate it completely. So i guess the answer is try to make your kids as resilient as possible, as well as try to make sure that at least your kid doesn’t bully anybody else? *makes mental note to have chat with her 2 boys after school*

    That’s terrible. It reminds me, when I was a kid my friend’s little brother got jumped in second grade by a pack of kids. He was in a full body cast.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Suspended? Expelled would be a better option for someone who acts like he is in a prison yard instead of a schoolyard.

    What a sad story all around. What will make it sadder is if it comes out that Bailey was the bully and the other kids the bullied. I hope not, truly. My heart and prayers to all involved.

  • Buffettgirl

    Poor kiddo,,, Best wishes Bailey.

    Hey @JGo555:disqus, there’s an update on the story here:

    Good for you Anna!!!! I’ve been in the same position with my son where nothing was done to stop the bullying. I wrote letters to all involved outlining the bullying, what I expected to be done, and the consequences if no action was taken. Then I took the letters to school and hand delivered them telling them I would file a grievance with the Department of Education, the School Board, as well as take them to court and contact the news agencies.

    My son was in 4th? grade at the time the bullying was full blown. It’s been 5 years with wrap around services – therapy, skills workers, 2 hospitalizations in a psych unit, several suicide attempts, social worker, psychiatrist and medications that we’ve gone through and are still using services.

    It should never have to take us parents being spitting mad for the bullying to stop for our kids. I shouldn’t have to be a raging “lunatic” to get the school to do their job in the first place.

    We have a saying in our house, “Never, ever, piss off the Mom.”

    Bullying the gift that keeps on giving.

    Oh my Lord. That’s horrible!

    I know the link was for JGO555, but it’s a link…… so I clicked on it. Why does it go to a site with a guy riding a fake horse and singing “HorseDick”?

  • midniteshadows

    I agree Sam. There is no way to eradicate it and it would be futile to even try. The best we can do is to educate the kids and provide consequences for their actions. There are so many facets that come into play – parents that don’t give a damn, can’t be bothered, or believe their kids can do no wrong, lack of ethics and morals, the education system taking on parenting roles, basic personalities involved and so on.

    The problem I have – and have always had is – why does my son need to change his very being, his nature in order to put up with assholes? Why are we, as a society, constantly changing ourselves to fend off assholes? It seems to me in the past, assholes were the exception to society, not the norm.

    Sorry. Got on my soapbox again.

    That boy sure is cute. Bet he looks just like his dad. I know I’m reading stories out of order, but between the boys being killed by being pinned between the two vehicles and this story I feel like crying myself to sleep tonight. Fuck this, I don’t have the stomach for this type of sadness anymore.
    I hope he’s alright. He looks like a fighter to me.

    I informed a friend recently that letters work best anyway. In a sue happy world the schools are afraid to ignore a letter because there is written proof of the incident. Also when you send a letter to the school be sure to put the names and address of the school board, the superintendent of schools and any higher ups from them. Inform the school that if this matter is not solved to your satisfaction you will take it as high up as you need to go.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Oh sure, spoil the surprise.

    I agree. In our house, it is often said that is Momma’s not happy, ain’t nobody happy!

  • FrikkenFrak

    The fight happened in January. As of Friday Feb 15th he’s still in a coma.
