SAN DIEGO - A student was critically injured Thursday evening during a track and field workout Thursday, officials at the University of California's San Diego campus confirmed.
Paramedics were called to the Triton Track and Field Stadium on the UCSD campus at about 7:15 p.m., San Diego Fire and Rescue spokesman Maurice Luque told Fox 5. They transported a male pole vaulter with a head injury to Scripps Hospital in La Jolla, Luque said.
"A tragic accident involving one of our talented scholar athletes occurred on campus during a track and field workout yesterday," said UCSD Chancellor Marye Ann Fox and Athletics Director Earl Edwards in a written statement on Friday. "Worlds cannot begin to express our sorrow. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of this remarkable student and valued member of the UC San Diego community."
University officials did not release the name of the student or his condition.
