Sad but true quote from the photographer:
PROVO, Utah — A newspaper photographer got a little too close to the action at the state high school track championships _ and was speared through the leg by a javelin.
Ryan McGeeney of the Standard-Examiner was spared serious injury in Saturday’s mishap, and even managed to snap a photo of his speared leg while others worked to help him.
“If I didn’t, it would probably be my editor’s first question when I got back,” McGeeney said later.
