A 14-year-old Boy Scout died in an accident at a Mount Pleasant area camp Tuesday.

David Pack, head of the National Parks Council says the accident happened at Tifie Scout Camp at Mountain Dell Scout Ranch east of Mount Pleasant at about 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Pack said the boy was attending a counselor-in-training program at the camp. He was picking up garbage around the camp when he apparently slipped and fell under the trailer that was picking up the trash.

The Scout’s name has not been released, but he is reportedly from Cedar Hills. The camp is actively working on getting grief counselors on site.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
