Tragedy in Boston tonight as there are reports coming out of Fenway Park of female fan with a “life threatening injury” after she was struck in the head with a piece of broken bat during the 2nd inning. From the AP:
A woman was removed from the Fenway Park stands bleeding from the head after being struck by a broken bat during the game between the Oakland Athletics and Boston Red Sox.
Boston police spokesman David Estrada says all or part of the bat hit her and her injuries were life threatening.
The fan was carried off on a stretcher after the top of the second inning Friday night. She was hit when Oakland’s Brett Lawrie broke his bat on a groundout to second base for the second out of the inning.
Photos from the ballpark show the seriousness of the situation:
Our thoughts and prayers are with this young woman and her family tonight.
Update. We just saw this and our hearts are breaking:
