This case involves a 9-year-old boy who was injured after attempting a maneuver on a balance beam. The incident occurred at a gym that trains children in gymnastics. The boy was learning a new handstand move in a class of 10 students and 1 instructor. After a brief demonstration, the boy was called to the beam to execute the move. There was no spotter and the instructor was standing about 10 feet away. The boy attempted the handstand, fell, and suffered a head injury as well as a significant fracture of his wrist. The boy required surgery for the injury. An expert in gymnastics training was sought to speak to proper protocols in supervision and maintaining safety.
