Cowlitz County teen beans self with shot put

The Associated Press

LONGVIEW – A Toutle Lake High School freshman was injured Thursday afternoon while he was throwing a shot put and it slipped out of his hand and hit him on top of his head.

The Daily News reports 14-year-old J.J. Peck was in stable condition while being evaluated at St. John Medical Center in Longview.

Toutle Lake Superintendent Scot Grabenhorst said the metal ball may have struck the boy a glancing blow on the top of his head but he did not lose consciousness.
