Youth jumps or falls from second-story window at Lockport school

A young person fell or jumped from a second-story window at a Lockport school and was transported by Mercy Flight to a hospital in Buffalo, City of Lockport Police Chief Michael F. Niethe confirmed on Monday.

Lockport City School District officials issued a statement Monday afternoon stating that Emmet Belknap Intermediate School had "activated a hold-in place as a result of a student injury requiring medical attention."

District officials stated that local first responders arrived at the school to attend to the student.

"The district is cooperating with law enforcement's investigation of this matter," the district wrote in its statement.

Niethe said inquiries should go to the school superintendent of the Lockport district.

Earlier in the day, Niagara County Fire Wire had reported that firefighters had responded to Emmet Belknap school after a 12-year-old had jumped out of a second-story window. Mercy Flight had taken one person to Children's Hospital, the news service reported on Facebook.
