A 16-year-old Texas boy was rescued uninjured from an abandoned mineshaft in Kittredge on July 13 after falling down the opening while hiking with his brother.
“He should’ve been dead,” said Jeffco sheriff’s spokesman Mark Techmeyer. “He was uninjured — unbelievable.”
The boy and his 15-year-old brother, who were visiting family in Colorado, were hiking near Troublesome Gulch Road and came across a hole in the ground.
“It ended up being an abandoned mineshaft,” Techmeyer said.
