Mason graduate dies after accident at track meet

Ethan Roser, a graduate of Mason high school and a current student at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, died after being struck in the head with a hammer during the Wheaton Don Church Twilight Meet. The hammer throw is a track event in which a 16 pound ball is attached to a thin wire and thrown for distance. Roser was a member of the men's soccer team and was volunteering at the meet. Roser had previously attended Dallas Baptist University and transferred to Wheaton this past year. Roser also played soccer at Mason and played club soccer with CUP.

This is a tragic accident. I read several accounts of the event and everything is rather vague about how the accident occurred or if there was a problem with the netting around the hammer circle.

Here is more on the tragedy: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...422-story.html
