Beacon HS student burned in botched chemistry experiment awarded nearly $60M


A Manhattan jury on Monday awarded nearly $60 million in damages to a former Beacon High School student who was badly burned by a teacher’s botched chemistry experiment more than five years ago.

The stunning amount nearly equals the $70 million-plus that Alonzo Yanes’ lawyer asked for during closing arguments last week – and more than 11 times the $5 million that the city said the permanently disfigured young man deserved.
