Teen falls off roof while trespassing at Walpole school

Posted: Updated:
WALPOLE, Mass. (WHDH) - A group of teens faces trouble after climbing on the roof of an elementary school in Walpole.

Police said one of the teens fell off and was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Boston.

Friends told 7News he broke both of his arms and his jaw.

“He may have had some internal injuries as well, and we’re not sure on that. Due to the nature of the fall and the head being involved, medics on the scene thought it would be best to MedFlight him,” Waltham Police Lt. Chris Mackenzie said.

The fall happened around midnight at the Fisher Elementary School. It was not clear what the seven teenage boys were doing there.

“They claimed it was a mutual challenge between the seven of them to see if they could gain access to the roof,” Mackenzie said.

Police said they expected to charge all of the teens with trespassing.
