Unbelievable: Volleyball Hits Player in the Face, Then Ricochets and Trips Kid Walking to the Bathroom (Video)

If you watch a lot of sports, you’ve probably seen an athlete get hit in the face with a ball, and you’ve probably seen a fan get hit in the face with a ball. However, I’m willing to bet that you’ve never seen an athlete get hit in the face with a ball, which then ricochets and trips a fan walking to the bathroom.

Of course, after today, you will have seen it, because such a chain of events occurred recently at a high school girls playoff volleyball game in Fort Madison, Iowa.  And we have the video to prove it.

Holy Trinity Catholic High was hosting Winfield-Mount Union High with a trip to the state championships on the line, and a powerful spike by Holy Trinity smacked a Winfield player right in the kisser, knocking her to the ground. But that’s not all. The ball bounced off the poor girl’s face and directly into the path of some kid walking to the bathroom, causing him to trip and fall.

Seriously, what are the chances?

Take a look for yourself:

Hopefully the girl who got hit in the face didn’t break her nose or anything. And hopefully that kid ended up making it to the bathroom on time.
