Several days ago Aggregates Manager sent out a safety alert after a young man drowned at an abandoned Fredericksburg rock quarry. Now the local fire department is also issuing a safety alert in the form of a warning video.
The fire department says the quarry is a “dangerous place,” and anyone who goes under the water will “likely die.”
The privately owned quarry does have “no trespassing” signs posted throughout the area. Anyone caught trespassing could be subject to a citation, fine or arrest.
