CALIFORNIA CITY, Calif. — A 10-year-old boy is in critical condition after he fell off his parent's car while "surfing" on the roof.

Officials from the California City Police Department say they received a call for a child struck by a vehicle near a home in California City.

When police arrived, they discovered the 10-year-old had been "surfing" on top of a car driven by one of his parents.
