Police: Youth Seriously Hurt in Vail Road Incident

Authorities say there's no threat to the community.

A township youth was seriously injured in an incident Monday afternoon at a Vail Road residence, said.

Several Parsippany police cars were reported at the site at about 1:30 p.m.

An active investigation is underway to determine what happened and why, according to a department spokesperson. 

Shortly thereafter, Principal Natalie Betz made an announcement to students, faculty and staff that a student had been seriously injured that afternoon. Betz said counselors would be available for students in need.

The injured student was not identified.

Police said no further information will be released due to policies regarding "age and patient confidentiality."

The public at large is not in danger, officials assured.

How dare you make such a mean spirited comment when a family is grieving over their child being hurt. You don't even know what happened and are relying on the "word that is going around town" and you still have the ordacity to make a comment like that. And to scold the parents besides for "what they did"? Shame on you. And by the way, God does answer prayers.

I can understand the police and press not mentioning the families names, but why not give any details about the incident? There is so little information in this story that Patch shouldn't have wasted their time printing it.

Selene, you are so wrong!!!! Whoever told you that prayers don't do anything is very wrong as well, believe me there is a God and he gives everyone a choice and your life is based on the choices you make, he will not get in the middle of your choices. They do work because I have seen it with my own eyes when my wife and I were involved in an accident with a drunk driver and she was left parilyzed from the neck down, and I had no idea what I was going to do and I prayed for a miracle and I got it and she has amazed me with her recovery since and I fell in love with my wife all over again and have been married now for 39 years and have tried to be there for each other. Prayers do work, you should try it sometime, you may find something you have been looking for.

PRS, I said that because I have met many of the kids who went to High School here and didn't even know who Martha Washington was. I had one kid work for me who thought that when his ex-boss got dressed in a suit and went to meetings and came to work like that, He thought that his boss only got off on dressing like that, and this kid also had 2 years of collage, he had no clue as many of the kids here do.
