A kindergarten-age girl has been flown to an Omaha hospital after being hit on the head by a bell.

The accident occurred Sunday afternoon during a youth football game at Tri County Public Schools' football field about four miles south of DeWitt in southeast Nebraska. The game was not a school event.

The bell is usually rung after a touchdown is scored at high school games.

Tri County Superintendent Randy Schlueter says he didn't know how much the bell weighs or how the accident occurred.

Schlueter says the district buildings and grounds superintendent has already examined the field to see how the district could ensure the area and equipment would be safe for future use.

The girl's name hasn't been released.
