A 14-year-old student in Middleton, Wisconsin was the unfortunate victim of what could have been a tragic accident if the young lady had lost her life. As this 8th grader was falling to the floor, her body suddenly stopped as a piece of the floorboard came up and she was impaled by it.

The girl fell while chasing after the ball, then realized she could not get up because a piece of floorboard had broken in the middle, with a 3-4 inch-long splinter of wood pushing into her stomach region. She spent the night in the hospital, but the wood missed all of her internal organs.

Shockingly, her family stated she should back on the court this week.
