State Police in Morrisville were called to Cazenovia when a child fell into a well. Investigators say a 10-year-old boy was at a Halloween party when he tried to hide inside a well during a game of hide and seek. Troopers say the wood cover gave way and he fell 16 to 18 feet into the well. The boy was underwater for an unknown amount of time.
Members of the Cazenovia Fire Department were able to pull the boy from the well. He was unconscious, and CPR was started by the CAVAC ambulance crew.
The boy is currently listed in critical condition at Upstate Hospital.
