Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 14-year-old basketball player in Wisconsin was partially impaled by a splintered floorboard.

As the girl was running, she fell on the court onto a board that had split in the middle.

The athlete was put on a stretcher and then spent the night at the hospital. None of her internal organs were hit by the wood.

A replacement sliver of wood was glued into place on the court.

The court is expected to be permanently fixed in the next week.
