15-year-old boy impaled by a javelin
POMONA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in California say a 15-year-old boy has been impaled by a javelin.
Pomona police Lt. Ron McDonald says the boy was airlifted to a hospital after accidentally falling on the javelin Sunday at Westmont Park Community Center. There's no immediate word on his condition Monday.
McDonald says the boy threw the javelin, then ran to get it after it stuck in the ground. He says the boy tripped and the javelin entered near his hip and came out through his buttocks.
Police took an accident report but nobody was cited or arrested. The boy's name was not released.
