A partial collapse of the Jacob’s Ladder Obstacle (a climbing net on Teen Missions’ obstacle course) resulted in mostly minor injuries on Friday afternoon during a photo session with some of the team members and leaders. The annual homeschooling photo was being taken on the obstacle when it appeared that some of the anchors pulled out on the back side of the climbing net. Most of the injuries were scrapes and bruises but 11 team members and one leader were taken to local medical facilities for tests and x-rays. As of 5:15 pm EST nine team members have been discharged and 2 are still waiting test results. One team member suffered a sprained elbow and another was treated with a broken wrist. One adult leader (male -41 years old) was taken to Orlando for tests and xrays. A family member has reported that they are still waiting for test / x-ray results.
*As of 6:30 PM EST ALL team members have been released with minor injuries. The leader is still undergoing tests/x-rays in Orlando.
We appreciate your continued prayers and encouragement as each team trains for their projects around the world.
