Authorities in Virginia are investigating an after-hours accident at an elementary school in Herndon that killed one teenager and injured three others on Tuesday night.
A 14-year-old boy died after getting entangled in power lines on the roof of Fox Mill Elementary School in Herndon. He was found dangling from a conduit some nine feet in the air and died on the scene around 9 p.m. on Tuesday.
Three other teens who were also on the roof were also shocked after trying to help the victim. They were all hospitalized with non-life-threatening. Two were 14, one was 15.
Police are not sure why the teens were on the school roof, but teens are reported to use it as a hangout spot. Police have secured the area to prevent further unauthorized access.
