On August 17 at 10:39 a.m., officers and paramedics responded to the Capital Club House at 3033 Waldorf Market Place in Waldorf for the report of an injured teenager.
Upon arrival, first responders found a 13-year-old male unresponsive and not breathing. A preliminary investigation showed the victim, who is from Carroll County, MD, was attending a hockey camp at the Club House and while practicing, was struck in the upper body with a hockey puck causing immediate injury.
The child was transported to Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C. where he was placed on life-support.
Sadly he died several hours later. “This is such a tragic case and hurts all of us to the core. On behalf of our Agency, I want to extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of this young man and to let them know they are in our thoughts and prayers,’” said Sheriff Berry.
The Medical Examiner’s Office in Washington, D.C. has ruled the case as an accidental death.
A GoFundMe has been set up for the family of the victim: Henry Lent Memorial Fund
