DENVER -- A boy was critically injured after he fell and hit his head at Denver Academy in southeast Denver on Friday evening, the Denver Police Department said.

A spokesman said a group of boys were on the grounds of the private school in the 4400 block or East Iliff Avenue when the boy fell. The boys called 911 and he was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

Police had originally said they were responding to a death investigation but later changed the information. The spokesman said it appears to be an accident.

He did not say why the boys, who are not students at the school, were there. No other information was released.

Denver Academy's website says it is a private day school for grades kindergarten through 12th grade.
