Family members say Bailey O’Neill died Sunday morning, a day after he turned 12.

The sixth-grader suffered a concussion, broken nose and other injuries in a fight at Darby Township School on Jan. 10.

Doctors later put him in a medically induced coma after he began having seizures.

Southeast Delco School District Superintendent Stephen D. Butz says the school sends its condolences to the boy’s friends and family. He says additional counselors are being made available for students and staff.

Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan has been investigating what happened. Messages left for Whelan and the boy’s family weren’t immediately returned.
