Teen accused of being in a restricted area when he fell over 30 feet at Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on July 28, 2015

Anytime you go off the beaten path at Starved Rock State Park, you’re asking for trouble.

Eighteen-year-old Mason Menning of Oswego is in good condition at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. He was flown there after falling at Aurora Canyon Monday morning.

Menning and two other teenage boys were allegedly climbing and hiking in a restricted area when Menning grabbed a small tree that broke off. He fell 30 feet and tumbled another 20 feet into a creek.

All three teens were ticketed.
