ROODHOUSE, Ill. -- Police in the central Illinois town of Roodhouse said a teen became pinned under a tombstone after tipping it over during a vandalism spree at a local cemetery.
Authorities said it took four firefighters to lift a 600-pound gravestone off the 16-year-old boy's leg early Tuesday after he helped knock over that headstone and dozens others.
The boy is recovering from undisclosed injuries at a hospital.
Police Chief Steve Speeks said the boy will be questioned.
I know he will rat out his friends and I hope they all get a lesson in respect. Perhaps the parents should also be looked at, I mean where do kids learn to be such losers???
