Ed Stuckey, 14, was hit in the shoulder with the javelin and was rushed to hospital where it was removed.Ouch! Nasty accident.
Paramedics were called to Norton Knatchbull School in Ashford, Kent, - a selective school for boys - at 3.20pm on Thursday.
Kent Fire and Rescue service had to use a small hydraulic tool - normally used to free people trapped in cars - to remove the javelin from his shoulder.
But maybe getting the headmistress to give a statement wasn’t wise:
Headteacher Susanne Stabb said: 'I would like to praise the immediate response and actions of our first aiders and the emergency services. They were superb and I cannot thank them enough.'*stifled giggle*
