JACKSON (AP) — Police say a West Tennessee teenager has died after falling some 80 feet.
Police told The Jackson Sun that 14-year-old Christopher Devin Alford and a 16-year-old friend crawled through a small opening into a smokestack Wednesday afternoon at the former Bemis Mill in Jackson. Police say the boys then climbed a ladder inside the smokestack. When Alford fell Wednesday afternoon, the 16-year-old ran for help.
Police say the investigation indicates the death was accidental from internal injuries.
