14 Year Old Girl Impaled By Wooden Piece Of Basketball Court After Diving On The Floor

MIDDLETON, Wis.A 14-year-old basketball player is recovering after a freak accident during a game. The girl fell and was partially impaled by a splintered floorboard. “I mean, there’s no rhyme or reason to this one,” tournament organizer Perry Hibner said. The gym was filled with confusion after the girl went flying into the floor and couldn’t get up. “And the official said, ‘What do you mean? Are you hurt?’ And she’s like, ‘There’s a piece of wood stuck to me,” Hibner said. The board had split in the middle and stuck into the girl from Wisconsin Heights, Wis. Her mom, the coach, was quickly by her side. “It was 3 to 4 inches long and in some parts, probably a quarter to a half-inch deep,” Hibner said. Minutes later, emergency crews showed up and everyone was asked to leave the gym. “We thought they were going to have to remove an entire board and take the board to the hospital,” Hibner said. That didn’t have to happen, but the eighth-grader was loaded on a stretcher and spent the night at the hospital. None of her internal organs were hit by the wood. “I don’t know if we’ll ever hear something like this ever happening again anywhere,” Hibner said.

YOOOOOOOO. There have certainly been more graphic and gory videos on the internet before but in a weird way this chick getting impaled is actually more cringe worthy. I mean she is cruising on her stomach. She looks like Shaq in his days back on the Magic in that one clip they always used to play on NBA inside stuff. You know exactly the one I’m talking about. Hes sliding for the loose ball and then throws it away right before crashing into the camera. That was this chick. And then she comes to a screeching halt because a splinter of wood ran through her stomach. I mean it looks like she hits an invisible wall. Just thinking about an old piece of basketball court wood ripping through your flesh makes my legs hurt.

Just goes to show why hustle is stupid. I spent my entire basketball career taking charges and diving on the floor for loose balls. Bruises, burns, constantly all battered. And for what? For fucking nothing. Should have spent my entire time just chucking up Steph Curry threes as soon as I crossed half court. Never pass, always shoot, fuck hustle. Have fun and try to be the star. Go for the glory. And dont dive on the floor or you’ll end up with a spike of wood through your gut.
