An 11-year-old girl, who officials say was doused with boiling water during a sleepover in the Bronx in August, is set to be sworn in as an honorary firefighter Thursday.
Jamoneisha Merritt is scheduled to be sworn in by Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro in Brooklyn.
She will then spend the afternoon with firefighters at Engine 37/Ladder 40 in Harlem.
Officials say Merritt was badly burned when a friend poured boiling water on her while she was sleeping.
Her family said she was a victim of the "Hot Water Challenge," for which kids and teens do pranks or dares using boiling water and post them on the internet.
The 12-year-old girl who allegedly threw the water on Merritt faces assault charges.
