A mother is furious over a vicious attack that almost killed her 8-year-old son.

The family of New Hampshire, found 8-year-old Quincy, with severe rope burns around his neck.

The mother, and grandmother Lorrie Slattery, claim that Quincy was playing with some neighborhood kids at 5:00 p.m.

At some point, the teens began hurling racial slurs at Quincy, who is biracial. They allegedly threw objects at the 8-year-old boy.

Soon, the boys got onto a picnic table. That is when the 14-year-old boy grabbed the rope that was part of a tire swing and put it around Quincy’s neck.

The teens pushed the boy off the table, causing him to hang for a short time before removing the rope.

Quincy was rushed to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, where he was treated and released. Police were called and they began investigating the incident.

According to the mother, the teens claimed that Quincy was hanged by accident while they were playing.

The boy’s mother Cassandra, wrote about the incident on Facebook, and posted graphic photos of her son’s injuries.

She said: “My son is being flown to Dartmouth after a 14-year-old kid decided to hang him from a tree. I don’t care if this was a so called accident or not.”

Police did not release details of the investigation as the suspects are all juveniles. So far, no arrests has been made.
