A high school football player was airlifted off Cape Cod after suffering a severe injury during practice, according to officials.

The injury was reported around 4 p.m. Tuesday to fire officials in Bourne, Massachusetts. A Boston MedFlight helicopter took him from the Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical High School to a Rhode Island hospital.

The student's injuries are severe but not life-threatening, fire officials said.

The incident took place on the school's football field.

A 4-year-old girl was left alone inside a minivan overnight in a Milwaukee tow lot, authorities said. An impaired driver was pulled over and arrested for operating while intoxicated. Officers removed a 10-month-old child from the vehicle but left the 4-year-old girl, who spent the night in the tow lot where temperatures dropped to 19 degrees.
