Parent: Boy who fell at Rib Mtn. Quarry out of hospital

RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) -

UPDATE: The boy, 16, who fell at the Rib Mountain State Park Quarry has been released from the hospital and is at home recovering, according to one of his parents.

It happened Tuesday around 5:40 p.m.

Officials said a group of kids were walking around the rim of the quarry when one of them slipped and slid down the rock face, landing about 15 feet below.

They say he suffered some head trauma. His parent tells News 9 he does have a concussion but is expected to be OK.

Savage said the department gets about three calls to that area a year.

Authorities encourage hikers to be aware of their footing, because the rocks are unstable.
