Boy, 14, injured in 20-foot fall in Allenstown

ALLENSTOWN — A 14-year-old boy was flown from a local rock quarry to a Boston hospital after he suffered serious head injuries stemming from a 20-foot fall.

Deputy Fire Chief Paul St. Germain said emergency officials responded to 13 Allenstown Road at 7:25 a.m. Saturday and treated the injured boy before he was taken to Boston.

The boy and three of his friends were on the property without permission, said St. Germain, who explained the accident happened at the base of the quarry in an area with loose granite and other rock.

Authorities did not identify the boys.

"This appears to be an unfortunate accident," he said. "What we do know is the boys shouldn't have been there, but they were apparently playing when he fell and was seriously injured."

St. Germain said police are investigating the incident.
