June 27, 2018
14-year-old Indiana boy passed away in hospital after the basketball backboard fell on him at his home. The teenager was reportedly playing with his younger sister on Friday evening that turned out to be the last game for the talented kid.
Nolan Gerwels was having fun with his younger sister on the indoor court in the South Bend suburb of Granger. The kids were playing basketball when unexpectedly the rim, backboard, and supporting bracket dispatched from the wall and hit the 14-year-old boy. Nolan was immediately transferred to hospital where he was later announced dead due to the heavy injuries. Law enforcement officers claimed the incident was an unusual case, so they will spend some time investigating about the safety of the attached basketball backboard.
