GRANBY, Conn. (AP/WTNH) — A Connecticut college student days from graduation has been seriously injured in a fall at a state park.
Police say first responders were called to Enders State Forest in Granby at about 3 p.m. Thursday after the student fell near the park’s popular waterfall.
The student has been identified as Adam Messing of River Edge New Jersey.
The 22-year-old Messing attended the University of Hartford and is scheduled to graduate Sunday.
Messing, who had been unconscious for an extended period of time after the fall, was flown by medical helicopter to a Hartford hospital with serious injuries.
The waterfall has been the scene of serious injuries in the past.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is investigating.
