Many Springville Jr. High School kids have gotten a broken bone, but how did they break that certain bone?

Brenna Carlton, an 8th grade girl, said that she broke her wrist when she was about 8 years old. Her friend had hit her face with a snowball and so she couldn’t see, so she tripped over her backpack and then she snapped her wrist. So in the end she had fractured her wrist, without having to get any surgery.

Seth Rigtrup, a 7th grade boy, broke his left arm by playing basketball and falling on it and so it snapped. It was his second time breaking that arm. He broke his arm really bad! In the long run, he did not have to get surgery. His arm is still broken and will be healing as soon as possible.

Third is Trae Hillstead, a ninth grade guy, and he broke his fibula and tibula. Instead of breaking them, he shattered them into about 10 pieces. He said that he shattered them by getting into a horrible motorbike accident. So all together he had to get surgery.

Next is Tyler Kelly (TK), also a ninth grade guy and he broke his collarbone. He broke it in football season. He said, “It was pretty bad, I could have died!” So because of this he had to get surgery.
