ATLANTA -- A Georgia teenager was put in a medically-induced coma after two other teenagers attacked him with boiling rice, police told WSB in Atlanta. The attack came after the teens fight into an argument over a video game system. Damon Clay, 17, suffered burns that covered 70-percent of his body when the other teens threw a scalding pot of boiling rice on his as he slept, according to the report. The suspects, ages 18 and 19, had accused Clay of stealing their PlayStation 3.

Family members said Clay had been in jail for burglary, but was released into a three-month program offered by a non-profit group. They said a local minister promised a judge he would provide Clay with shelter and guidance. That never happened, family members said, and Clay instead bounced around the homes of family and friends.

"He didn't have any supervision. None," Clay's aunt said. "I'd rather my nephew be in jail then be here."

The teens accused of attacking Clay were charged with aggravated assault and cruelty to a child.
