A vacant bed and breakfast with no electricity and no running water was littered with hundreds of beer cans. It was the apparent scene of an underage drinking party that left an 18-year-old girl seriously injured.
“It did get loud, and I realized there were no lights on, but it sounded like there was 10…20 people over there,” said Phil Rose, neighbor.
Just as Rose was contemplating calling police a cruiser showed up. Scituate police say they found three intoxicated teens trying to help a girl impaled with some sort of branch after she somehow fell from a second-story balcony.
Police say the girl was going into shock and was rushed by a medical helicopter to a Boston hospital.
“My wife was looking out the window and saw the girl get loaded on a stretcher and taken away,” said Rose.
Neighbors say the owners of the bed and breakfast moved out last year, only stopping by to care for some sheep.
A woman who came by to feed the sheep had little to say, but she did point out that the damage was extensive.
“That’s the damage. $25,000 worth of damage to my house,” said the woman.
Police arrested six teens for trespassing and underage drinking. They say they found some teens hiding inside the home, but they say others fled, leaving the injured girl.
“There were kids going through the neighborhood backyards, there were reports of kids, when the cops came, peeling out in their cars and running through the neighborhood yards,” said Rose.
The property owner says because of the damage she is not sure if she is going to be able to open for the summer season.
Police say their investigation is still ongoing and there could be other teenagers who also face charges.
