Massachusetts, Provin Mountain

Massachusetts, Provin Mountain—On November 11, Joseph Maruici (12) and two friends, members of a boy scout camporee, were climbing and hiking over Provin Mountain and Maruici apparently lost his footing near the edge of the cliffs on the west side of the mountains. He bounced about 65 feet down the cliffs and then tumbled another 150 feet down the scree slope. He received a compound fracture of his leg. After considerable confusion, rescue operations were organized and he was taken to the hospital.
