Boy falls through skylight in Winchester
WINCHESTER, Ky. (WKYT) - A boy is in the hospital with a serious brain injury after falling through the roof of a building in Winchester.
Fire officials say firefighters were dispatched around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday to a building at the corner of Church Alley and Broadway for a pediatric emergency.
They say a 12-year-old Kameron May had gotten on the roof of the building, didn’t see a skylight and fell through. Fire officials say it took them several minutes to locate Kameron. They found him on the ground level and he was unresponsive.
A friend of Kameron told firefighters that he had gotten on the roof from the back of the building. Fire officials say the roof is lower in the back.
Fire officials believe the building was condemned after being damaged during flooding in October.
We’re told it was a case of “kids being kids” and fire officials believe the kids may have been playing.
Fire officials did not know Kameron’s current condition but, from posts on social media, we’re hearing he’s in critical condition.
Kameron plays football with Clark County Youth Athletics. His dad is one of his coaches. Other coaches and teammates are on edge.
“We’re hurt. We’re just trying to come together. He just needs all the prayers he can get,” said Clark County Youth Athletics President Allison Fuller.
A prayer vigil for Kameron is being held Thursday night at 7 at the Clark County Courthouse in Winchester.
