The victim’s mother, Leah Ann Morales, met on CBS3 outside Temple University Hospital.

“I watched the first three seconds when I knew it was her and I couldn’t see anymore,” said Leah Ann Morales. “You know it’s your daughter, and you know she’s burned, and then you’re like, ‘She needs help, can someone help her?’ And I found out on the Internet.”

His daughter Alyssa is in the burn unit. In an exclusive interview, Leah Ann Morales said that she came to know about the vicious attack on social media. His daughter was set ablaze by someone in a park in the Kensington section of the city late Thursday.

“She’s going to live, but she’ll have permanent damage,” said Leah Ann Morales. “She’s going to have to put on a new face. I’m saying this, she’ll never have the face she was born with, and that’s the hard part when she can look in the mirror and see a different face.” .

Police are reviewing surveillance videos and trying to locate eyewitnesses who have important information about who did this to Alyssa Morales.

“I’m sad, I’m broken, I’m so angry,” said Leah Ann Morales. “I just want to know who did it. Don’t you want to know who did it? Wouldn’t everyone want to know who did it? Who could possibly do it? Do you want them to do it again? ? They go home and laugh, ‘Oh, I got away with this?'”

Alyssa Morales could stay in the hospital for the rest of the summer. She will need facial reconstructive surgery. Her mother said that she would also have to go to rehab to learn how to do basic things again.

If you have information about this horrific attack, call the police at 215-686-TIPS.
