OMG Files: Super-Sized Splinter Gets Lodged In Footballer’s Thigh
None of these men are Jose P, amateur futbal sala player (futsal) and member of the Penya Sang Cule (FC Barcelona supporters group), prior to a huge piece of wood getting stuck in his thigh. Rather, we went with a random photo found whilst Googling “futsal” in order to spare those readers of ours who are of faint heart or body from seeing what’s next.
To see the gut-wrenching injury, follow us.
This *is* Jose P., after a super-sized splinter got threaded through his leg, stopping his squad’s match against Cornella last weekend dead cold.
Witnesses recount that he was sprinting up the right side of the pitch when he ran into an opposing player and was sent skidding across the floor.
He’s extremely lucky because the wood only punctured skin, it didn’t affect a muscle or, even worse, a nerve or bone. Once at the hospital, they were able to remove the object, clean up his wound, and send him home. His team is considering legal action against the grounds to cover his medical costs.
Yikes. Hoping for Jose’s speedy recovery!
