The Belleville High School student who was injured Monday in an accident involving a plate of safety glass is in good condition and is expected to return home in a few days.
Paul Henning, the school district’s communications specialist, said the student was running through the hall of BHS and failed to stop at the library doors when, in an effort to stop himself, both of his arms went through the safety glass in the doors of the library.
His forearms were severely injured in the accident and Belleville EMTs responded immediately, rushing the student to the hospital, Henning said.
The student is expected to go home by the end of the week.
School officials are working with the parents of the student to provide in-home services as he recovers from his injuries, Henning said.
