SMYRNA, Ga. – A high school student is hospitalized after sustaining a severe brain injury while playing bubble football.

Salvador Reyes was playing a game of bubble football with friends at Campbell High School when tragedy struck.

In bubble football, players carry inflatable bubbles and collide.

Witnesses told the BMS that Reyes was aiming for a header when he collided with another player and hit the ground.

“His forehead immediately broke inside and he had bleeding in the brain,” said Ruby Reyes, Salvador’s sister.

At this point, doctors wait for the swelling to go down until they can determine the extent of the damage.

Reyes says Salvador can open his eyes, but he is still in the intensive care unit.
