A 2-year-old boy fell into a septic tank at a home on Apple Hill Road in Waynesburg on May 17, state police said.

Trooper Forrest Allison said the boy, who was not identified, was playing in the yard when he fell in around 11:18 a.m.

Allison said he did not know how the toddler was pulled from the tank, but said the boy was flown to a Pittsburgh-area hospital for treatment. He did not know the extent of the boys injuries.
