Germany. Germany. The 8-year-old set fire to the couch and the sleeping parents

The event took place on January 6 at approx. At 6 a.m. in an apartment block in the Neuperlach district, the 8-year-old felt neglected – he was jealous that his parents devoted more time to a sick child than to him. Therefore, he decided to set fire to the sofa on which he was sleeping. The boy’s father was slightly injured (Germany). The 28-year-old was sleeping with his wife on the fold-out couch in the living room when suddenly he was awakened by the burning smell. It turned out that there was a fire in the apartment – the upholstery of the sofa on which they were lying was on fire. The couple jumped out of the bed immediately and the fire was extinguished.

Psychological problems

The firefighters who arrived at the site did not have much to do, because the apartment was only sufficiently ventilated – reported the daily “Abendzeitung München”. Material damage was relatively minor, but the 28-year-old was slightly injured.

Munich. The boy set fire to the couch

As the cause of the fire was initially unclear, the police were called. While the officers were talking to the couple, their 8-year-old son approached them and admitted that he had started the fire. He said that he had deliberately set fire to the couch with a lighter because he felt neglected: his parents weren’t paying him enough attention – unlike their second, sick child who requires constant care.

The parents were shocked by their son’s confession. The 8-year-old was observed in a children’s hospital, where he will be examined by psychologists and therapists. The police informed the Office for Children and Youth about the whole incident.

The local police are investigating, but the boy will not face any consequences.

“In law, he is considered unfit for a similar offense,” police spokesman Werner Kraus explained in an interview with the daily “Abendzeitung München”.
