Southeast Kansas teen gets stuck over bluff while playing at Riverside Park

Updated:
According to Labette Health EMS officials, the boy was playing with a soccer ball at the park in Oswego, Kansas when it rolled past the fence and over the edge. When he tried to get it back, he lost his balance and fell approximately 75 feet before getting stuck. Some fishermen saw him and called 911. It took the EMS repel team about 30 minutes to bring him back up. Officials warn those playing near any bluff to take precautions. 

"If you get too close to the bluff site seeing at any of the lakes or parks and there's considerable drop off, there's always a chance you could fall and not be able to get back up so I suggest you stay a safe away from the edge," said Randy Grimmett, Deputy Chief, Labette County EMS.

One local resident recalls seeing him stuck on the cliff.

"He had fell quite a ways down and it looked like he was holding on by just a small tree," said Oswego, Kansas resident Beverly Goedeke.

According to officials, the boy did not complain of any injuries upon his retrieval.
