The student suffered no injuries in the incident, and was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center by Riverhead ambulance volunteers as a precaution, police said.

“He’s fine, just wet,” a police officer at the scene said.

The manhole cover to the septic tank had been removed before the teen fell in, police said, adding it was unclear how it had been opened.
