Daisy Mountain Fire officials rescued a 17-year-old boy after he fell into a shaft near Desert Hills Drive and New River Road.

MCSO officials say the call came in at around 6 p.m. after the boy was riding a quad and fell into the shaft.

34 units responded and a full rescue team dropped into the mineshaft at 6:45 p.m. He was transported to Phoenix Children's Hospital for an evaluation, MSCO says.

It is unclear if he suffered any injuries, however, fire personnel say he was alert and speaking to the rescuers.
