ALEXANDER, N.Y. -- An Attica High School Football Player was taken to the hospital by Mercyflight after a game at Alexander High School Friday night.

A freelance photojournalist working for WGRZ witnessed the incident firsthand in the game between Attica and Alexander.

She says the player was unconscious when paramedics arrived at the field.

At this point, the player's name has not been released, and there are no details about his condition or how he was injured.

This comes two weeks after Westfield-Brocton player Damon Janes was hurt in a play during a game at Portville High School.  Janes died a few days later at Women & Children's Hospital in Buffalo.
