FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida teenager who was doused with rubbing alcohol and set on fire last year no longer needs treatment at a burn clinic.
Police say other teens from Michael Brewer's school attacked him at his apartment complex in October, leaving him with burns over about 65 percent of his body.
The 15-year-old went to his last appointment Monday at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Burn Center in Miami. His grandmother says he will not need any further treatment unless there is an unforeseen problem.
Brewer was burned a day after he called police to say some other teens had tried to steal his father's bike. Brewer might also have owed one of the teens accused of burning him money for a video game.
Three teens have been charged as adults with attempted murder.
