Bullied, beaten Bailey O'Neil turned 12 in hospital last Saturday; Sunday he died

Via the New Civil Rights Movement we learn that Bailey O'Neil, in a medically-induced coma following the onset of seizures the day after being beaten by two classmates at Darby Township School, is dead. The above video, obviously, was aired before O'Neil's death.
     Philadelphia's NBC10 reported:

While the students who jumped Bailey were suspended for two days, police have not yet revealed whether they will be criminally charged.
    “I would like to see these kids punished,” said Fecanin [his grandmother] when she spoke to Zachry last month. “Something has to be done. I don’t know what’s taking them so long.”
    Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan says investigators are trying to determine if the injuries Bailey received in the fight caused his seizures. Investigators interviewed kids and recess aides who were on the playground when the fight broke out.
    “We can assure them that we are going to continue with our investigation,” said Whelan.
    Bailey’s younger brother was taken out of the school because his parents were worried that he'd also be the victim of bullying.
