Teen injured after fall into basement

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock teen is recovering after he fell about twelve feet into an unfinished basement late Friday morning.

The Lubbock Fire Department's heavy rescue team pulled the 14-year-old from the hole just before noon. He fell into the basement at a construction site near 114th and Milwaukee.

The Fire Department called in the specialized team due to concerns about a possible spinal cord. The team used a pulley system and basket to bring the teen up from the hole.

"The teenager is a relative of one of the plumbers out here, and so he was out here with those guys and accidentally stepped on the cover to this basement and fell through," says Deputy Chief Chris Angerer with the Lubbock Fire Department

Deputy Chief Chris Angerer could not release the victim's name due to his age. An update on his condition is not available.

    Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller — the cowboy-hat wearing Republican known for wading deep into partisan and cultural divides — is furious with the Six Flags amusement park chain, calling its decision to take down the Confederate flag and four others that had flown over the park part of a “militant, anarchist movement sweeping our country, destroying and attempting to sanitize our nation’s history.”
