CLAREMONT — An 8-year-old Claremont boy had to be flown to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center after an older teenage boy allegedly hung him from a tree by a rope placed around his neck, according to a Facebook post by the boy's mother.

Cassandra Merlin posted a photo of her son's injuries with the caption, “So 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. My son almost died because of some little ... teenage kids.”
