MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) – It was a bad start to the morning for a couple of local teens.
According to the Mesa County Sheriff's Office, two 19-year-old men were climbing on the roof of Mount Garfield Middle School around 3 a.m. Wednesday.
When passing over a hole which provided access to an electrical box, one of the teens fell into the hole and became trapped.
Clifton Fire crews were called out to help rescue the man and take him to the hospital.
Deputies arrested the men but did not take them to jail. Instead, they were issued a summons for trespassing, which is a non-custodial arrest.
Authorities were not sure exactly what the two men were doing there.
The middle school was not damaged.
