Lewiston Middle School Student Dies On Field Trip
According to multiple reports, a 12-year-old student at Lewiston Middle School died on Tuesday (June 12) during a field trip to Range State Park in Poland.
In a story from the Sun Journal, Lewiston Superintendent Bill Webster said the student, whose name and grade have not been made public, died accidentally after going under the water. He said that while rescuers immediately responded to the area, the boy was not located for some time because of "murky" water conditions.
The story said the boy was taken from the scene and was later declared dead at a nearby hospital.
The incident remains under investigation by the Androscoggin County Sheriff's Department.
