GARDEN GROVE (CBSLA) — What should have been a harmless senior prank at Garden Grove High School ended with a 911 call and one pranker in a neck brace being loaded into an ambulance.
An ambulance was dispatched to Garden Grove High School at about 1:25 a.m. Wednesday, where paramedics found a boy who had tripped and seriously injured himself. He broke his nose and cut his eye open, but responsive as he was being loaded into an ambulance.
The boy was with a group of up to 20 other students at the school, armed with plastic wrap and toilet paper, intending to wrap the school and throw toilet paper everywhere, just two days before the last day of classes.The fall happened when a security guard surprised the group.
His friends stayed with him while the ambulance was on its way.
As for the prank? While there was still some evidence of plastic wrap around tree trunks, and toilet paper hanging from tree branches, the prank largely fell flat, because police officers made the rest of the prankers clean up the mess.
But that likely won’t be the end of the consequences for the the prankers. The injured teen’s parents were notified, and police let the rest of his co-conspirators go. But Garden Grove High School officials say they are investigating and, according to district discipline protocols, it’s possible the prankers won’t be allowed to walk on graduation day.
