Teen falls through metal ventilation grate
A teenage boy fell nearly 20 feet after a metal ventilation grate gave way outside the Flossmoor Public Library Friday evening, said fire officials.
The rescue effort took about 30 minutes.
Flossmoor Fire Chief Chris Sewell said the teen was conscious on the way to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
A construction company was called in to board up and wall off the area, while an investigation continues into what happened.
