Police: Child Falls Through Roof of Building in Dedham

A child had to be rescued Wednesday after police in Dedham, Massachusetts say he fell through a roof.

Emergency personnel responded to the scene and were forced to use the jaws of life in order to free the child, who had fallen 12-feet to the concrete ground below.

The child, who has not been identified, was not hurt, according to police.

The roof the boy fell through is on the side of a plaza containing a CVS. The concrete box was a loading dock for a former supermarket, but it is no longer in use.

No other information was available.
