B112 - Gang of 8 - 11 yr olds try to burn disabled boy in shed

Disabled Canadian teenager locked in burning shed

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - A group of young bullies locked a disabled Canadian teenager in a shed and then set it on fire, according to police and media reports on Monday..... Brian McKay, 14, was born with spina bifida, a disorder that damages the spinal cord. He consequently walks with a limp.

He was at a playground in the Western Canadian city of Winnipeg on Saturday when a group of children ranging from eight to 11 years old pushed him into a nearby shed, locked it, set it on fire and fled, Winnipeg police said.

A nine-year-old girl heard McKay calling for help from the shed but couldn't open the door, but a friend of hers managed to get it open. A man then heard the children yelling and carried the teen to safety...... The boy and the young girl were taken to the hospital after suffering from smoke inhalation, and were in stable condition.
