Boy Impelled with Stick While Riding ATV
In Newark, Ohio, a 13 year old boy was recovering after being impaled through the stomach by a stick while riding on the back of a four-wheeler at the Ohio Mudfest.  The stick narrowly missed a major artery.  Blade Wil-liams apparently pulled the stick out himself, and later had surgery at Columbus Hospital to remove and reconstruct more than six inches of his bowels, colon and
intestines. (USA Today 10-1-14, p. 4A)
