21 Mar Soccer Goal Injury
On March 20, 2015 a 13 year old boy was air lifted from the Eastlake Middle School in Chula Vista, CA after he received severe head injuries when a soccer goal fell on him. It is still unclear how the accident occurred and it is unclear if any anchoring devices were in place at the time. Our hopes and prayers for a full recovery go out to the young boy and his family and we pray that, someday, the soccer goal industry will recognize that for a soccer goal to be safe and portable it must include a permanent ballast system attached to the rear of the goal. We must find a way to stop this travesty.
