While the title of the article is a bit misleading, the point of the article is true over and over again: do not tresspass, do not run from the police, and do not jump off cliffs. It’s a hot mess. And, for goodness sake, if you’re going to get caught, do NOT say you are ghost hunters!
MERIDEN, Conn. – Three teenagers were seriously injured when they jumped off a cliff while trying to outrun police.
The chase began after police caught the amateur ghost hunters trespassing in a public park.
Police spotted the boys shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday in Hubbard Park near the former Undercliff Sanatorium for children.
In 1918, the facility became first sanatorium in the country devoted exclusively to children.
The abandoned sanatorium is widely considered to be one of the creepiest places in Connecticut.
Police told reporters the boys considered themselves to be amateur ghost hunters.It isn’t clear how far they fell.
One of the boys used a cell phone to call for help.
