Teen Suffers Broken Leg at Rock City

A teenager suffered a broken leg after falling from a rock at Rock City Park late Sunday afternoon.

Allegany firefighters say two teen boys were climbing rocks at around 5 o’clock when one of them got wedged about 45 feet off the ground and the other fell to the trail below.

The teen who fell suffered a compound leg fracture and was taken from the scene by Mercy Flight helicopter. Firefighters had to rappel down from above the rocks to rescue the other teen, who sustained only minor bumps and bruises.

They got both boys out by 7:20 p.m.
