CHARLOTTE COUNTY Fla.- 9 year old Logan Nelsons charred clothes were still in his grandparents yard this morning. Logan suffered 2nd degree burns over 80 percent of his body after an accident Monday night. Doug Nelson, the boys grandfather spoke about seeing the nine year old right after the accident. "He was screaming- he was in bad shape he was not a happy camper", said Nelson.
Nelson says Logan and some other children were playing with a container of flaming gasoline underneath a tree in the lot behind the Nelson residence. "One of the kids kicked whatever they had the gas in and it splashed all over Logan", said Nelson. Logan was airlifted to the Tampa General Burn Center and later to the Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati. "But he's stable and in no pain cause I believe he's in an induced coma", said Nelson. Nelson claims that he holds no ill will toward the child who kicked the gasoline all over his grandson and he hopes that other children will learn from Logans mistake.
