MARLBORO, N.Y. -- Students at Marlboro High School were still in shock after what happened on campus Tuesday night.
"Everyone was crying and they just felt really sorry for him," said high school senior, Aarron Alsdorf.
Police said it happened in the back parking lot of the school around 8 p.m. They said a 15-year-old student was riding on the hood of a car when he fell and hit his head. When police arrived, they found the student severely injured and bleeding from the head.
"The time frame was very, very quick. It happened within minutes and as they were driving around the back of the school," said Michael Bakatsias Assistant Superintendent of the Marlboro Central School District.
He said he believes the student was possibly car surfing.
"Basically students riding on the top in some way whether they’re sitting or standing, I really don’t know, but riding on the top of motor vehicles for fun," said Bakatsias.
Officials said a total of five Marlboro High School students were involved, including a 17-year-old driver.
"There was one student on the hood of the car laying down, another one in the back of the car and three in the vehicle," said Bakatsias.
The freshman was flown to Westchester Medical Center, and last listed in critical condition. School officials said he plays on the football team.
"Unfortunatly these are not toys, they’re vehicles and accidents do happen," said Bakatsias.
