Nicole Wignall, 16, was injured when a giant snowball rolled down a hill and pinned her against a wall.
The snowball, measuring 4 foot by 4 foot and weighing several hundred pounds, was made by Wignall and a group of friends, according to reports from thesun.co.uk.
Snow has been impacting much of the UK over the past week. "Snow depths close to the Blackburn area have reached more than a foot as recently as Friday," said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Jim Andrews.
Wignall's pelvis was broken in four places. She and seven friends made the snowball after classes were cancelled. The group then rolled the snowball up a steep hill.
As Wignall and a friend were chatting a few minutes later, the ball began to roll down the hill and struck her. She was pinned against the wall and no one could move the snowball. She was pulled out by a friend.
She was transported to the Royal Blackburn Hospital and is being treated for her injuries. She will be in a wheelchair during her recovery.
