Teen Tennis Player Nearly Dies In Freak Accident


A Minnesota boy didn’t just get the wind knocked out after hurting himself on a tennis court — he nearly died days later after injuring his intestine. Jesse O’Brien, of Mentor, Minn., ran into the net at full-speed last spring, and he’s been recovering at several hospitals ever since. He is now at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
