So sad. A female baseball fan was struck in the face by a piece of a broken bat during a Red Sox game at Fenway Park on June 5. She was left bloodied and injured, and was raced to the nearest hospital. The freak accident was caught on video — watch it here.
A horrific scene unfolded at Fenway Park on June 6, as a woman was hit in the face by a broken bat and suffered “life-threatening” injuries. The unidentified female was bleeding profusely and screaming in agony when medical professionals rushed her out of the stadium on a stretcher. The unfortunate incident was caught on camera, and you can watch it here.
In the video, you can see Oakland Athletics player Brett Lawrie hitting a ball and shattering his bat. While the handle was left in his hands, the barrel of it went flying into the crowd. Sadly, it struck the woman who was sitting near the visitors’ dugout on the third base side. Screams were immediately heard by fans and those listening from at home. Authorities claim her injuries are “life-threatening,” according to Boston Globe.
Medical professionals quickly intervened, and after several minutes, the bloodied woman, who attended the game with her husband and son, was placed on a stretcher and wheeled out of the stadium as she screamed in pain (this, too, can be seen in the video above).
“Our thoughts and concern and certainly our prayers go out to the woman who was struck with the bat, her, and her family,” Red Sox manager John Farrell told the Boston Globe. “All you can think about is a family coming to a ballgame to hopefully get three hours of enjoyment and unfortunately with how close our stands are to the field of action . . . an accident like this tonight, it’s certainly disturbing.”
At this time, there is no update on her condition. Our thoughts continue to go out to this female fan. We hope she’s okay and has a speedy recovery.
