Bronx girl accused of dumping hot water on friend

Bronx girl accused of dumping hot water on friend

Merritt suffered burns to her face, back and shoulders and was rushed to the hospital in serious but stable condition.

According to the New York Post, the 12-year-old girl who allegedly poured water on her was arrested and is now facing a felony assault charge. When she fell asleep, a girl of 12 years old he poured the boiling water over the body.

Two of Jamoneisha Merritt's cousins visited her at Harlem Hospital on Wednesday. It's been going on several times. You let this happen to my daughter!'

A cousin of Jamoneisha told police her cousin and the older girl were arguing before the incident, although the cause of the argument was not immediately clear. "She's still smiling, joking. laughing, yeah she's doing good though", said Starshanae Nixon, Jamoneisha's cousin.

So distraught has the daughter allegedly become, Panton told of Aniya being under suicide watch at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center after trying to stab herself with a knife. "I wanted to do it", she said.

Following Ebony Merritt's Thursday "outburst" cops were called outside Panton's family home to speak with the distressed mother in a bid to "defuse" the situation. "She thought they was her friends", Ebony Merritt told NY1 News.

"I could only be with her for a little bit, because I can't hold myself together", Yolanda said. "I don't want her to see me cry".

Sources told NY1 that Jamoneisha may have fell victim to the risky "hot water challenge" that has been trending on social media.

One incident turned fatal when 8-year-old Florida resident Ki'ari Pope died from burn injuries sustained in March.

The family described the 11-year old as being "joyful, fun and energetic", adding that she always has a smile on her face and loved to see others have one, too. Children and teens seeing the fake challenge may not be aware of the lasting damage the boiling water can cause.
