Boy, 9, Dies After Being Impaled by Bike Handlebars

A boy died Wednesday after being thrown from his bike and impaled on the handlebars of his friend’s bicycle. Both boys fell to the ground.

The two boys were riding their bicycles along a road in Australia just after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday when their bikes clipped the handlebars, causing both children to fall, The Daily Telegraph reported.

The 8-year-old boy landed heavily on the grass nature strip beside the road, but escaped serious injury.

However, the 9-year-old boy sustained internal injuries after his stomach hit the handlebars of his bike during the fall and he later died at the hospital.
