“Kids are kids. You know we all went through that point in our lives where we were invincible and you know really you don’t think about what the end game or what the end could really be and in a game like this the end, could be the end,” said MSP Lt. Jim Lang.

Officials say the game could lead to concussions, hemorrhaging and seizures.
