Baltimore County Police have had a busy 24 hours at local chains.

On Sunday, two boys fell down a hole on the property of the McDonald’s on Kenwood Ave. in Rosedale. The 11-year-olds were playing when they fell into the three-foot opening, which was covered with mulch. One was able to get out before falling in completely, but the other got trapped about 30-45 ft. below ground, police said.

To rescue him, a rope system lowered a firefighter into the hole. The firefighter attached a harness to the boy, and the rope system pulled him out.

Firefighters determined that the hole was an old well owned by McDonald’s. They covered it with a steel plate to prevent anyone from falling in again.

Monday morning started with a run to Starbucks. A car ran into the Starbucks on York Road shop just before 10 a.m. Pictures from news stations like WBAL and ABC2 show a silver Lexus went in through a front window of the Starbucks.

Police said four people were hurt, but they were all described as minor injuries. As for the building, a structural engineer was requested by police to assess the damage, but there wasn’t any further information on the damage or repair process.
