A teen-aged male was injured while performing community service at a Fire/EMS Station. Just before 3:00 pm, Friday, August 27, 2010, an approximately 18-year-old male sustained injuries when he fell through a skylight on the roof of the Greenbelt Fire/EMS Station and dropped approximately 15 feet to the floor below.
The teen was using a leaf blower to remove debris from the roof of the station when, for whatever reasons, fell through the skylight. He was immediately tended to by firefighter/Medics working at the station. He was transported by paramedics to a Trauma Center for evaluation and treatment. His injuries are not considered life-threatening and he remained conscious and alert.
The City of Greenbelt Police Department, as well as the Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department, will be reviewing the circumstances of this event.
