Jabril was returning home from school one afternoon to his third story apartment. Alone in his room, Jabril started playing with matches and accidentally caught his shirt on fire. Jabril ran down three flights of stairs engulfed in flames when finally, someone in the building caught him and smothered out the flames. Jabril endured a long recovery with burns over the majority of his body.
