Kindergarten student injured by falling radiator

A Chaska kindergarten student was injured Thursday afternoon when a radiator crashed through the ceiling of his classroom, reported the Star Tribune.

The kindergarten class at Guardian Angels Catholic School, in Chaska, was celebrating Valentines day when the 400-pound heater fell through the ceiling, breaking the young student's leg. The incident also injured two fellow students and two teachers, but none of those injuries were serious enough to require medical treatment.

The Pioneer Press reports the piece of equipment being about 3-feet by 5-feet in size. It is unclear what caused the fall but structural engineers are expected to look into the exact cause.

With the exception of the student whose leg was broken, all students were healthy enough to attend class the next day.
