Student, struck by shot put, recovering
A student at St. Dominic High School in O’Fallon is improving after being struck in the head by a shot put. Joe Mathews was taken to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital March 31 after the accident at a track and field event at Orchard Farm High School.
Sister Mary Bender, the school’s principal, reported on the school’s website April 3 that Matthews was moved out of intensive care. He sustained a skull fracture but CAT scans did not show further damage, she reported.
The school community has been praying for the student since the accident.
