THE BRONX -

A Bronx teenager has been sentenced to three years in prison for his role in a brutal beating that left a street vendor in a coma.

Enrique Foote pleaded guilty to assault charges after prosecutors say he and five others attacked Souleymane Porgo over a purse in May of last year.

The attack happened at the corner of 149th Street and Third Avenue and was all caught on camera.

Porgo was left in a medically induced coma while doctors operated to reduce the swelling in his brain and repair his fractured skull.

Foote will also have three years of supervision when he gets out of prison.
