A student was seriously injured Wednesday when he was hit in the face with a baseball at Indian Land High School.
The incident happened just before 5:30 p.m. on the baseball field. Officials said a 14-year-old boy was hit during fall baseball practice.
A safety director says the student was wearing a helmet with a face guard and running bases when another player threw a ball that hit him.
The ball managed to go through the face guard and hit the teen in the eye area. The player lost consciousness.
