    Autistic boy, 12, is put into intensive care coma after boys give him drink ‘mixed with bleach’

    Autistic boy, 12, is put into intensive care coma after boys give him drink ‘mixed with bleach’ then flee when he collapses

    • Ronnie Phillips sneaked out of his home with his brother Jimmy, 11, on Friday
    • He was given a can of drink believed to contain alcohol mixed with bleach 
    • Ronnie placed on life support at St George’s Hospital in Tooting, south London

    An autistic boy was left fighting for his life after he was given a can of drink believed to have been mixed with bleach. 

    Ronnie Phillips, 12, from Crawley in West Sussex, sneaked out of his home with his brother Jimmy, 11, while their mother was sleeping on Friday.

    Danielle Potter said her sons met up with some older children who gave Ronnie a drink they said was gin. While it is yet to be confirmed what substance was mixed with the alcohol, the family believe it may have been bleach.

    Ronnie then collapsed on the street and the older children ran away, Ms Potter said. She added the boys stayed out all night but were found by police in the morning.

    Jimmy, who was left traumatised by the incident, stayed by his brother’s side thinking he was dead.

    The boys were then found by a woman who helped them as emergency services were called.

    Ronnie was rushed to St George’s Hospital in Tooting, south London, where he was put in an induced coma in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.

    He has since been taken off life support and is due to return home shortly.  

    Posting on Facebook, Ms Potter said: ‘I just want to make people realise the dangers of drink, drugs, playing stupid games and running away leaving a child to die.

    ‘Kids will be kids but this sort of stuff is just ridiculous and dangerous.’

    A fundraiser has been launched by Ronnie’s grandmother to support him following the shocking incident.

    Tracey Willmor said: ‘He is now awake but can’t understand why no one likes him and would do this to him when he thought they were his friends.

    ‘I want to show him that people do care and are not all nasty.’

    Sussex Police have been approached for comment.
