There's an update to the story about an 11-year-old Wake County boy who tried to commit suicide because he said he was getting bullied at his Zebulon middle school.

Michael Morones' family said he successfully breathed for 12 hours without assistance.

Morones had a tracheotomy done a few weeks ago, and he still isn't conscious.

His parents say he was tormented so badly because of his love of "My Little Pony" that he tried to kill himself.

Michael hung himself off the side of the bunk bed. His parents got him to the hospital, but oxygen to his brain had been cut off.

Money can be donated at any State Employees Credit Union under the Michael Morones Recovery Fund, Checks can still be mailed to: The Michael Morones Recovery Fund, c/o Team Trivia Inc., 1380 Woodvine Way, Alpharetta GA 30005, or through PayPal at
