Greenville child abuse victim sparks donation fund

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, Pa. -

A donation account has been set up for the eight-year-old boy named in a Greenville child abuse case.

Antonio Rader was rescued in June from the home where he was reportedly abused and starved.

Detectives who witnessed his physical condition described the boy as a "human skeleton." Antonio weighed only 25 pounds when he was found in his Greenville home.

The boy's mother, Mary Rader, and his grandparents, Dennis and Deana Beighley, face aggravated assault and other criminal charges for allegedly starving and beating the young boy.

A family friend of the Raders' has set up a fund where community members can donate to Antonio's recovery.

Donations for Antonio Rader's fund will be accepted at any Huntington Bank Branch.  You will need the account name: Donations for Antonio Rader.  The account number is also preferred: Account #01780312075
