JERSEY CITY - A 16-year-old boy was rescued from a well in Jersey City after he and his friends allegedly broke into the old Jersey City Reservoir.
Emergency officials were called to the reservoir near the corner of Summit and Jefferson avenues Tuesday evening after receiving reports that the teen has fallen into the well.
A Jersey City fire official tells News 12 New Jersey that three teens broke into the old reservoir, and that the 16-year-old fell 30 feet down into a well. The official says that the teen was not seriously injured because the water in the well broke his fall.
He was rescued and taken to the hospital.
It was not immediately known if any of the teens will face charges.
