WASHINGTON CITY, Utah (AP) -- A 10-year-old boy was injured when a boulder landed on his legs.

Washington City police Sgt. Dean Brimley said the boy was conscious and breathing when emergency crews arrived Tuesday night. The boulder had already been removed from his legs.

The boulder fell while the boy was playing with friends in an undeveloped area of Lost Ridge Drive.

Fire Chief Chuck Tandy says the boy was doing pretty well at the scene, but was in a lot of pain.

The boy was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center. His name was not released.
