A 7-week-old Iowa girl is in the hospital after being hit in the head with a softball during a freak accident at her dad's recreational baseball game.
McKenna Hovenga was breastfeeding in the stands when a ball flew over the fence and hit her head.
"The ball came over the fence - and either hit McKenna first or hit Kassy (mother) first," according to a YouCaring page set up on her behalf. "We're really not sure as it happened so fast and Kassy was looking down at McKenna as she was feeding."
"McKenna didn't begin to scream until a few seconds afterward," the update says. "They were unaware that she was even hit, until the large lump formed."
Before being life flighted to St. Mary’s Hospital at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., she was taken to a nearby hospital with skull fractures and two brain bleeds.
Doctors gave McKenna anti-seizure medications and have been monitoring her blood clots, according to the Facebook page, "Healing for McKenna."
