A 16-year-old Boy Scout from a Concord troop died Saturday when he fell at Stone Mountain State Park in Wilkes, according to officials with the park. According to Boy Scouts of America officials, Christopher Overcash, a Boy Scout leader for Troop 128, was on a weekend activity with the troop when he fell. State parks spokesman Charlie Peek says the teen was with a group of Boy Scouts that had camped overnight at the park. Overcash was about 100 yards off the marked trail on the mountain's summit when he fell. Wilkes County emergency director Greg Hendren says the call for help came around noon Saturday. The teen died at the scene.
