Firefighters pulled an 18-year-old man to safety after he jumped into a quarry and injured his shoulder.

The teen jumped into one of the quarries in West Quincy at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday. A friend called for help when the teen hurt his shoulder and could not climb the 30 to 40 feet of rock to get out, Fire Lt. Steven Infascelli said.

Firefighter Chris Murphy swam out to the man and secured him to a life ring. Firefighters used ropes to pull him to safety, Infascelli said.
