FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Michael Brewer's grandmother says the teen has recovered better than doctors thought he would a year ago when he was doused with rubbing alcohol and set on fire.
Reenie Brewer says her grandson likes bicycling and
skateboarding and is going to driving school. She says no one can tell how badly he was burned unless he lifts up his shirt to show the scars.
Police say other teens from Michael's school attacked him, leaving him with burns over most of his body. Three teens have been charged as adults with attempted murder.
Reenie Brewer says doctors initially expected Michael's recovery to take years. The teen returned to school in April and finished treatment at a Miami burn center last month.
Michael turns 16 on Monday.
