NYC girl who poured boiling water on friend tried to kill herself

A schoolgirl prank gone gruesomely wrong left an 11-year-old Bronx girl hospitalized with severe facial burns — and her rage-filled mom bent on revenge.

Relatives of hospitalized Jamoneisha Merritt called Thursday for arrests in the scalding of the girl at her friend’s Bronx apartment.

The victim’s mother Ebony Merritt appeared outside the home of Shernett Panton and her 12-year-old daughter Aniya Grant Stuart, spewing obscenities and threats.

“I’m going to cut your face, you f—ing b—h!” Merritt screamed at Panton. “I’m going to burn your f—ing house down! You let this happen to my daughter!”

There’s hope for healing when people suffer serious burns

The burned girl’s mother allegedly choked Aniya over the Monday morning incident and punched her 14-year-old big sister Shawna in the face, according to the Panton family.

“Now I’m getting text messages from her nieces or maybe her cousins,” Shawna said. “It makes me feel scared.”
