Schoolboy rugby - teen critically injured
Johannesburg - A 15-year-old boy is in a critical condition after being injured during a rugby match at a school in Sannieshof on Wednesday, North West paramedics said.
Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said it appeared the boy was injured when a scrum collapsed.
"When all the other forwards rose from the collapsed scrum the teen stayed down and was unable to move.
"Paramedics transferred the boy from a hospital in Sannieshof to a private medical facility in Klerksdorp for further care."
The extent of his injuries was not immediately clear.
