After falling to the floor and sliding a few feet, a Wisconsin teen playing a basketball game was impaled by a stray wooden board from the basketball court. "There's a piece of wood stuck to me", she said as people surrounded her and asked her what happened. Quite an eerie site as you see the girl sliding across the floor and come to an abrupt stop at the point of impalement. Part of the floor board had split in the middle and stuck into her body. "The piece of wood was 3-4 inches long and between a quarter and a half inch deep", said a witness to the incident.
As everyone is asked to leave the gym, emergency responders arrive. Responders thought they might have had to remove part of the basketball court to bring her into the hospital without removing it from her body, but that wasn't the case.
The teenager spent the night at the hospital, and fortunately, none of her internal organs were hit by the piece of wood. A replacement sliver of wood has been repaired to the basketball court and is guarded by garbage cans until it's fully dried.
No legal action against the school district is expected.
