FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida teenager who was doused with an accelerant and set on fire last year says he is going back to school.
Michael Brewer said on Tuesday on the "Today" show that he feels great and that he misses school. He is set to return to
school on Wednesday. Family members did not say which school he would be attending.

The October attack left Brewer with burns on about 65 percent of his body. Police say Brewer was attacked by other teens at an
apartment complex. Three teens have been charged as adults with second-degree attempted murder in connection to the attack.
