Utah Boy Scout Killed in Freak Camp Accident

A Cedar Hills family is in mourning today, after a freak accident -- at the Mountain Dell Scout Camp, in Sanpete County -- claimed the life of a boy.

Authorities aren't yet releaseing the name of the 14 year old.

Utah National Parks Council Scout Executive Dave Pack says the boy was killed, while assisting with trash collection at the camp.  He reportedly fell under the wheels of a trailer.

Camp staff and emergency responders attempted to revive the victim, but were unsuccessful.

Pack says, in thirty years associated with Utah scouting, he cannot recall another fatal accident at an organized campground in the state.
