Deputies said two teen boys, ages 15 and 16, were doing handy work around the farm and decided to get on a motorized man lift and run it for fun.

The two did not know how to use the machine correctly and, as a result, the boom arm collapsed. Both teenagers fell about 40 feet to the ground, suffering serious internal and leg injuries.

I know this is a dumb question but where were the adults? And doesn't such a device have some sort of lock or no?
