A TEENAGE boy fought for his life in hospital after an alleged incident of bullying by high school students.
Trenton Lehrkamp, 19, was “tortured, humiliated and assaulted” by a group who lured him from his home in Brunswick, Georgia, according to a GoFundMe page set up to raise money for his hospital expenses.
According to the fundraising site, Lehrkamp was bullied by “people he thought were his friends.”
According to local newspaper The Brunswick News, the alleged perpetrators are said to have attended Glynn Academy high school.
GoFundMe claims Lehrkamp has been in the hospital “with a fever and pneumonia” since Tuesday, March 21.
Police have since confirmed that Lehrkmap is “alert and conscious” and were able to issue a statement from the hospital on Sunday March 26.
Glynn County Police said Lehrkamp suffered no physical injuries but was treated for high-level poisoning from a mixture of controlled substances and alcohol.
According to the GoFundMe page, Lehrkamp was “tortured, humiliated and assaulted” by the group of his colleagues.
It adds: “He was dropped off outside the emergency room doors. He was deemed inconclusive for life; only 6 breaths per minute.
“As of that evening, Trent has been in the ICU on a ventilator battling a fever and pneumonia.”
The Glynn County Board has said the police department is gathering facts, interviews, evidence and other information related to the incident.
“This is still under investigation and is very fresh,” county police commissioner Michael Robinson said Sunday.
The US Sun has reached out to Glynn Academy and the Glynn County Police Department for comment.
