Bullied Boy Dies: Bailey O'Neill, 12, Dead Weeks After School Bullying

Here is a more detailed article about young Bailey O'Neill's death which occurred as a result of a violent bullying episode and a traumatic brain injury sustained in the school yard attack.

Laws must change to accommodate tragic deaths like this, caused by assault related traumatic brain injuries, where the full scope of the damage is often not immediately appreciated.

Seizures and other serious seleleque caused by swelling of the brain will often begin days weeks and months after the TBI is inflicted. As well, there is the chance of slow bleeds,( hemotomas), Diffuse Axonal Injuries, fractures of the skull that go undetected, (especially basilair fractures ) and a host of other evolving conditions that can be life debilitating, or life threatening.

Rest in Peace Bailey
