BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn teen reported missing on Friday was found in the Bronx after falling from a roof onto the sidewalk.

Zaire Young, 14, is in critical condition at St. Barnabus Hospital after falling six stories from the rooftop of 2244 Crescent Ave. Police say he suffered severe injuries ranging from two broken legs to a broken pelvic bone.

Authorities are investigating if the teen was pushed off the building. The roof offered no protective barriers or railing.

Family members told News 12 that Young's mother remembers seeing her son on Friday night at their home on Cornelia Street in Brooklyn.

His aunt, Charmaine James, says her nephew used to live with her at the Crescent Avenue building. She says that she never noticed Young ever visiting the building’s roof.

Young's family says they are willing to offer a reward for anyone with information about the incident.
