Strong Winds Topple Light Pole Onto Soccer Field

A referee broke his leg after the pole fell on top of him.

Strong winds knocked down an 80-foot light pole and sent it crashing during a high school soccer game in Arkansas Monday night. 

The pole fell right on the referee, who was trapped under it with a broken leg. Student-athlete Andrew Davis suffered cuts to his head and leg as it hit him as well. 

"It hit me in my head, that is where I felt it, but then after I felt it in my shoulders and I had a big bruise, I had to get seven stitches to my knee," he told Inside Edition. 

Andrew's teammate, Camden, rushed over to do what he can.

"I went over there to pull the metal bar, I bent it a little bit so he could get out of it," he told Inside Edition.
