The Southborough Fire Department posted this afternoon about an emergency rescue effort:
Just around 3:15 today we responded to a call in the area of 238 Parkerville Rd (the Quarry) for a male who sustained injuries from a fall from the rocks. It took members, both on duty and off duty, to extricate him to our paramedic ambulance that was waiting for him. Great work by our team and also the members of the Southborough Police Department! No emergency responders were injured.
SFD posted pics from the scene:
I have to admit, I’m not familiar with the “Quarry” and can’t find anything online. If anyone has information on that worth sharing, please post a comment.
[Updated (9/6/17 3:03 pm): Readers shared interesting details on the quarry in the comments below. (And one clarified that the extrication done by firefighters wasn’t from inside the quarry, it was from the scene, through the woods to the rescue truck.)
Another commenter, John Kendall, followed up to share a pic of the location. His version is a bit different looking than what I found online – where Google shows all the trees. When I took an initial look yesterday, I mistook the gap in the trees over the quarry as a shadow. You can see both pics by clicking thumbnails below.
The bottom line is that the site is between Parkerville and Atwood roads, south of Mooney and Moore. It is part of private parcel – which – according to a comment below, the owners are asking people not to trespass in order to explore.]
As long as I’m sharing SFD news – within the past week, the department also assisted other towns, responding to at least two house fires. Plus, they put out a car fire on the Mass Pike the first day of school. Here are their posts on those:
