New York State Parks officials say a City of Buffalo teen is dead after a snowmobile crash in the Red House section of Allegany State Park.

Officials say Gabriel Brzezinski, 14, crashed his snowmobile into a tree after losing control on Sunday. The child's father and sister, who were with him on separate sleds, called first responders who rushed to the scene.

The father administered CPR at the scene until NYS Parks Police arrived and transported the victim, via snowmobile, about a mile to an awaiting Star Flight helicopter that transported the boy to Olean General Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

New York State Parks Police continue to investigate the circumstances of his death.
