Concerned players quickly came to her aid after they realized she was stuck to the floor.

The stunned basketball coach and tournament organizer Perry Hibner said: ‘I mean, there’s no rhyme or reason to this one.’

Hibner said he halted the game and called the emergency services who arrived at the scene within minutes.

‘We thought they were going to have to remove an entire board and take the board to the hospital,’ he said.

For now the board has been glued and taped up and games have been resumed at the gym

Thankfully crews were able to load the eighth-grader onto a stretcher and she was rushed to American Family Children’s Hospital where doctors were able to remove the splinters which measured between three and four inches, and half an inch deep.

‘I don’t know if we’ll ever hear something like this ever happening again anywhere,’ Hibner said.

For now the board has been glued and taped up.

Games have been resumed at the gym which Hibner insists is safe. He says the floor is only 15 years old and the unfortunate incident was just a freak accident.

The girl is expected to make a full recovery and return to playing next week.
