A brave eight-year-old boy was beaten to death with hammer as he tried protect his sister from being sexually abused. Dante Daniels was declared brain dead after the attack by his mother’s former partner in Sacremento, California, and died six days later.
Dante’s grandmother Monique Brown told WBRC Deandre Chaney Jr. also attacked Dante and Danae’s mother Elizabeth and all three ended up in hospital.She said: ‘Trying to save his sister from this child molester, that’s why he was beat the worst.’However, the devastated grandmother took some comfort from the knowledge Dante’s organs will help another child live.
She said: ‘“Dante gave his heart to a four-year-old in Southern California, so a four-year-old lives because of him.’
Ms Brown revealed her daughter has probably lost the sight in her left eye and seven-year-old Danae will need long-term care too, a GoFundMe page has been set up to pay for the medical costs.
