Young Man Falls from Stone Arch by Capital Crescent Trail Last Night


A reader sends word last night:

“7:00 witnessed a young man fall from the stone arch at the beginning of the Capital Crescent Trail in Georgetown. There were a bunch of kids hanging out on top of the arch, and someone fell near the water, and hit a big metal pipe.”

Horrible. Hope the young man is ok.
