CORPUS CHRISTI — A 13-year-old boy was injured about 1 p.m. Saturday at Cabaniss Field during a track and field event, a police dispatcher said.
While pole vaulting, the boy fell about 9 feet and landed on his face on a hard surface, medical rescuers said.
He was conscious while taken to Driscoll Children's Hospital with back and leg pain, officials said.
"He was alert and oriented," hospital spokesman Mike Bratten said.
