Mechanicsburg High School

Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School.

A Mechanicsburg teenager died last weekend following an ATV accident, according to Cumberland County Coroner Charlie Hall.

Brody Manatt, 14, was in Perry County on Saturday when the accident occurred, Hall said. He was transported to a local hospital but later died.

Manatt was a ninth-grade student at Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School, according to ABC27. On Monday, the school made grief counselors available to students. A Go Fund Me page established in Manatt’s honor has already raised more than $10,000. The page has a $15,000 goal to help off-set funeral expenses for the family.
