4-year-old boy suffers burns while watching parade


A four-year-old boy suffered burns to his arm while he was watching a parade with his family in Kawachinagano, Osaka Prefecture, on Sunday.

Police believe the boy may have been sprayed with a substance by someone in the crowd as he watched the danjiri parade just before 10 a.m., broadcaster NTV reported.

The boy’s mother said he started crying and when she looked at him, his jacket and shirt were wet and blisters had appeared on his arm. He was taken to hospital where doctors said his injury will take about two weeks to heal.

Police suspect some sort of corrosive liquid was either sprayed or poured on the boy.

I hope they somehow catch the psycho piece of crap who did this to that poor kid. I'm sure they'll be doing it again and again until caught.

Pathetic Jackhole. Who are these deadbeats with nothing else better to do? Give them some hard labor. Get some use out of their pathetic lives.

Too bad the headline wasn't "Man in coma after several men nearly beat him to death for spraying dangerous chemical on little boy".
