Helicopter Lands On Alma Football Field After Player Injured

ALMA, Ark. (KFSM) — A helicopter landed on the football field at Alma High School after a junior high football player was injured during a game Thursday (Sept. 12) evening.

According to an administrator with Alma schools, a player from Morrilton attempted to make a tackle and did not get up after the play.

At first, he was unable to move his arms and legs but regained movement after being put on a backboard.

It's unclear at this time whether or not the player was airlifted out of the stadium.

The player's mom took to Facebook to say her son was doing okay.

"He has strained ligaments in his neck and a concussion. We are all so thankful the neck injury was not worse," Jennifer Davis said in a Facebook post.
