State police say Monday March 14, that Connor McLaughlin, of Greenwich, New York, was with his uncle at the base of Roaring Brook Falls in Keene on Sunday afternoon when the boulder fell. Troopers say the uncle saw it coming and yelled a warning, but he slipped into the brook as the boulder hit the boy, crushing him against a tree. Rescuers attempted CPR, but the boy died at the scene. His uncle was treated for minor injuries sustained in the fall. Troopers say the boy had gone on an impromptu hike with his relative to look at the falls. Police say the boulder broke loose from near the top of the falls and fell about 100 feet before hitting the boy. This accident has caused devastation all around the world due to the death of the young 12 year old boy. This accident will cause people to be more aware of their surroundings when around nature.
