A 14-year-old basketball player from Middleton, Wisconsin fell during a tournament and slid across the floor, a normal occurrence during a game.

What wasn’t normal, the girl couldn’t get up because a piece of floorboard went through her torso. It was about 4 inches long.

She was taken to the hospital. Amazingly, no organs were punctured.

School officials told local station WISC they don’t know how this happened and the floor is fairly new. They are now working to fix it.

The girl is expected to play again this week.
