UPDATE @ 4:12 p.m.:

It’s uncertain how a student on a class trip to Camp Kern fell into a six-foot ravine, but emergency crews eventually rescued the boy.

Turtlecreek Twp. crews had difficulty navigating the terrain to rescue the boy who apparently sustained a leg injury, according to initial dispatch reports.

Fire department officials did not know which school the boy attended, nor how he ended up stuck in the ravine.
