DENVER – A boy who struck his head after falling at the Denver Academy was in critical condition Friday evening.

Denver Police originally reported officers were investigating a death at the Denver Academy in the area of East Iliff Avenue and South Dahlia Street around 8:15 p.m., after a friend of the victim called police to report the situation.

John White, a spokesperson with the Denver Police Department, told Denver7 during a press briefing that the fall “does not appear to be criminal in nature.”
