He’s been identified by the school as Christian Lorinczy.

The incident happened around 8:15 p.m. Monday while Lincoln Middle School students were playing a game on the Lincoln High School football field in Augusta Township, about 30 miles southwest of Detroit.

Police said Christian was playing catch with friends near the stadium’s handicap access ramp when their football was thrown over a nearby fence and the boy went to retrieve the ball. Shortly thereafter, one of the teen’s friends noticed he was lying against the fence and went to check on him, police said. The friend realized the boy was in distress and called for help.

A woman attempting to check the Christian’s pulse reached through the fence and was also shocked. 

Police quickly responded to the scene and evacuated the stadium. Christian was reported to be in critical condition when he was taken to the hospital for treatment.  The woman who was shocked was treated at the scene, police said, but refused transport to the hospital. No other injuries were reported.

Officials used a hand-held meter to check the fence for an electrical current and confirmed it was electrified. School officials were notified and all power was turned off to the football stadium area.

The following statement was posted to the school’s website on Friday:

“Dear Lincoln Families,

We have some very difficult news to share. As all of you know, Christian Lorinczy, a student at Lincoln Middle School, was involved in a very serious accident on Tuesday night. We had hoped that he would fully recover, but unfortunately, this morning we learned that Christian has passed away.

It is our goal to ensure that the school day for our children is as normal as possible. We have counselor, psychology and social work professionals available throughout the district. However, if your child has contacted you and needs assistance, please contact their school office.

Our thoughts are with the Lorinczy family and the entire Lincoln community at this very difficult time.”

Michigan State Police and the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating the case. State police Sgt. Chris Pascoe told The Ann Arbor News detectives are awaiting autopsy results.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or who might have video from the football game to contact police at 810-227-1051.
