Firefighters responding to a call about a man being assaulted in the woods in rural Pennsylvania discovered about 100 young people partying in violation of the state’s coronavirus stay-at-home order.

Members of the Grindstone Volunteer Fire Department found the hidden party around 5 a.m. Saturday in Fayette County. Chief Rich Lenk said the all-night bender involved some underage drinking.

The article goes on to state the following:

About 100 people were at the gathering when authorities arrived, but Lenk said he believes the group was even larger hours earlier when the festivities kicked off around midnight.

In the Facebook post, the Fire Department described the incident as follows:

The Grindstone VFD responded to a man assaulted in the woods early this morning at 5am in Sherbondy hollow. We had to use side by sides to locate the young man. Upon looking for him, we found a 100 person youth drinking party. Some were passed out in vehicles laying on top of one another, some were still upright still going strong. Please, if anyone has children, do not let them go to these parties in this area. Especially now in this time we are to stay 6 feet away from each other. The young man was found and taken by ambulance to the hospital.

According to the report, the very frustrated fire chief said, “We don’t have that much equipment to wear, and we have to put it on and come back in here. It’s happening every weekend, and it’s getting a little too much for us every weekend.”

WATCH the following news report. First responders said they’re fed up having to use their resources to deal with situations like this, when people are not honoring the social distancing guidelines.

KDKA reporter Shelby Cassesse wrote, “Firefighters in Grindstone, Fayette County are upset after busting a “youth drinking party” of around 100 people deep in the woods early this morning. The fire chief tells me they had limited equipment to protect against coronavirus, and it was all used breaking up the party.”
