A 13-year-old Florida boy was hospitalized Friday after he was impaled by an umbrella at a Massachusetts beach, authorities said.
First responders responded to a call around 1:40 p.m. Friday after reports that an umbrella at Good Harbor Beach had become dislodged and struck someone in the shoulder, Boston 25 reported.
“Went up in the air and hit a couple of ladies in the head and came down and impaled the poor boy right in the armpit and there was blood everywhere,” witness Laura Wood, of Rawley, told the news station. An EMT and a nurse who were already at the beach helped the teenager until first responders arrived. The boy is expected to recover.
