Service Thursday for teen killed as a result of quarry accident
A freshman at Pembroke Academy, Glover was at the Plourde Pit in Allenstown Saturday morning, April 12, when he fell from a height of about 20 feet, according to authorities.
He suffered serious head injuries and was airlifted by medical helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital.
The boy and three of his friends were on the property without permission, according to Deputy Fire Chief Paul St. Germain, who said the accident happened at the base of the quarry in an area with loose granite and other rock.
"This appears to be an unfortunate accident," he said. "What we do know is the boys shouldn't have been there, but they were apparently playing when he fell and was seriously injured."
Glover, of Dowst Road, died Monday, April 14. According to his obituary, he was the son of Edmund and Beverly (Thresher) Glover and graduated last year from the Armand R. Dupont School in Allenstown.
Family and friends are invited to gather to share memories Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Pembroke Academy auditorium. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Joshua Glover Memorial Fund, c/o TD Bank, 50 Glass St., Pembroke, 03275. The Petit Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
