September 4, 2023
A high school football player in Pennsylvania needs "a miracle" after collapsing on the field in the middle of a game on Sept. 1, according to his family, who said in a health update on Sept. 3 that the 17-year-old has been in critical condition for more than 36 hours. Mason Martin, a quarterback for Karns City High School, suffered a "significant brain bleed as well as a collapsed lung," his family told KDKA-TV. The matchup between the Karns City Gremlins and Redbank Valley Bulldogs was cut short in the third quarter when referee Mike Vasbinder noticed Martin started to stagger after he received a hit during the game.
Various news stories say he has "injuries". But none of them describe what happened.
