The boy's mother, Miranda Roberts, told WTHI-TV in Terre Haute that her son was spending the night at a family member's house in West Terre Haute when he woke up in pain. He realized that his sock and hair had been set on fire, and that beer had been poured on him, Roberts said.
"I just drove as fast as I could to get there, and I was throwing up," Roberts told the news station. "And I just remember walking in, and I don't even know who was in the room. I just went straight to him."
