Church Roof Plunge
Teen falls through skylight and 30 feet to the floor while trespassing on church roof.
A boy is recovering in the hospital after falling through the roof of a church in Bellaire, Texas.
Bellaire police said three boys were playing on the rood of the Bellaire United Methodist Church around 12:30 a.m. Thursday.
One of the boys fell through a skylight and landed inside the church.
A wooden bench broke his approximately 30-foot fall.
The church's pastor said children often play on the roof of the church.
"We want kids to be a part of what we do," the Rev. Valerie Hudson said. "We just want them to be here when we're here."
The boy was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.
The other two boys were taken into police custody.
Charges are pending.
