One Teenager Dead, One Critical After Falling From Building in Brooklyn: NYPD

Police are investigating the death of a 13-year-old boy who may have been jumping between buildings in New York City.

Police say the teenager was found behind a building in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn Friday afternoon with severe head and body trauma.

They say a second teenager had suffered injuries to his pelvis.

Both boys were taken to Kings County Hospital, where the 13-year-old was pronounced dead. His name was not immediately released. Police say the second youth is conscious and alert.

Published reports say the teens were jumping from one building to another.

A police spokesman says investigators will determine whether that's what happened.
