Rochester Teen's Death Prompts Call for Safer Skateboarding


Friends of a Rochester teen who died in a skateboarding accident last week are hoping to use the tragedy to encourage other skateboarders to take safety more seriously.

 

15-year-old Riley Severns was not wearing a helmet when he fell while skateboarding near St. Louis.

 

He struck his head on the concrete and died the next morning.

 

The State Journal-Register reports a group of Riley's friends want to promote "Riley's Rules," urging skateboarders and others to wear helmets and other safety gear when they ride.
