KABUL, Afghanistan – Coalition forces Friday provided medical care to a 14-year-old boy who had been severely injured by an improvised explosive device in Shaheed Hasas District, Oruzgan province.  The boy is currently in stable condition.

The boy was riding a donkey on a dirt road near his village when the donkey stepped on an IED.  The boy’s father rushed the boy to a nearby Coalition forces medical facility.

The boy suffered shrapnel wounds to his face, neck and left thigh.  He also suffered a jaw injury.  His wounds were too severe to be fully treated at the initial Coalition forces medical facility he was taken to, so he was later transported to a Coalition forces hospital in Tarin Kowt District, Oruzgan province, where he underwent surgery for his wounds.
