A boy was flown to a hospital because he may have suffered a spine injury in a football game Saturday afternoon in Brentwood, a battalion chief with the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District said Sunday.

Firefighters were called at 4:09 p.m. to Liberty High School at 850 Second Street after a 12-year-old boy collided with another child, Battalion Chief Jeff Burris said.

The game was a tackle football league game.

Burris said protocol required that the boy be taken to a hospital and he was flown to the University of California at San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland.
