Kid climbs up memorial.
Goes “splat” and “crunch!” and “snap!”
Authorities said the teen was visiting the park on a school field trip when he fell from the Pennsylvania Memorial around 9am on Friday.
Acting park spokesman Jason Martz said the boy, who is from Fort Wayne, Indiana, was then flown Hershey Medical Center for treatment.
Martz said the youth suffered broken bones and internal injuries.
Authorities have not released the boy’s condition at the hospital and he has not been identified.
The top of the monument has an observation level, and the boy fell from there despite a 3- to 4-foot-high safety wall.
Martz told ABC 27 that the teen fell from a stairway while in an area ‘where he was not supposed to be’.
The park has opened an internal investigation.
The 100-foot Pennsylvania Memorial, the park’s largest monument, is in the center of the Union line on Cemetery Ridge.
