Manitoba Teen Dies Falling From Truck

Teen Dies Falling From Truck

WINNIPEG - A teenager has died after falling from a moving vehicle in Beausejour.

RCMP say a 16-year-old boy from the RM of Brokenhead was seriously injured after falling off the back of a pickup truck. Police say they believe the teen was with friends when he attempted to jump onto the back of the stationary truck, but the truck suddenly moved forward and he was thrown off balance.

The fall happened in a parking lot last week, and the teen was taken to a nearby hospital before being transferred to one in Winnipeg, nearly an hour-long drive southwest of the Town of Beausejour. Local RCMP were informed just after 9 the next morning, and the boy died of his injuries three days after the incident.

Police continue to investigate.
