PAYSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a 15-year-old boy has died from injuries he suffered while using a zip line east of Payson.

Coconino County sheriff’s spokesman Gerry Blair says the Phoenix-area boy suffered head trauma in the accident Saturday. The boy was pronounced dead at the Payson Regional Medical Center.

Blair says the boy had been participating in the activity with a Boy Scouts troop at a private residence in Forest Lakes.

Authorities have not released his identity.
