Two Injured in Two Separate Sledding Accidents

Posted: Updated:

Two people are recovering tonight, following two separate sledding accidents in Frontier Park.

Emergency crews rushed through the park around 5:45 p.m. to rescue a 47-year-old man and a 10-year-old boy.

Witnesses at the scene say that the man was thrown from his sled, sending him tumbling down a hill.  He was taken to the hospital with back injuries.

Meanwhile, moments later, the 10-year-old boy was tubing with his grandfather, when he hit a jump, bounced off the tube, and landed on his head.

The boy was rushed to the hospital, with possible neck and head injuries.

As of tonight, no word on either person's condition.
