Texas boy set on fire by other children

10-year-old fighting for his life with more than 20 percent of his body burned.

KERRVILLE, Texas - A boy with special needs is fighting for his life after his family says he was set on fire in Kerrville, Texas over the weekend.

More than 20 percent of 10-year-old Kayden Culp's body was burned, from his ears to his belly button, according to the boy's mother.

She said that her son was playing in a field with two other children when one boy doused him with gasoline and another set him on fire. A shed also caught fire.

"He needs justice," says family friend Ashley White, "I mean, no kid deserves to go through anything he's going through, at all. Period."
