NBL Player's Eye Pops Out of Socket During Game


National Basketball League player Akil Mitchell suffered a terrible eye injury during a game in New Zealand.

Mitchell went up for a rebound and another player accidentally poked him in the eye, causing it to come out of the socket. He can be seen on the ground in pain and relied on the help of his teammates to help him off the court. Mitchell left for the hospital shortly after.

WARNING: The video is graphic.

Mitchell tweeted that he was ok and even showed his sense of humor. 

Luckily it was one of those cases of looking much worse than it actually was.
