Is "it" referring to a natural calamity? Or something someone did? Are any of the players responsible for "it"?

Did you hear about this in the news? Was "it" something remarkable? Unexpected?

Does the "scoring system" consist of players dropping out if they do badly?
If you were playing this game at school, would your teacher know about it? would you play it in a PE lesson? drama? in the playground?
Is any music involved in the game? something like musical statues/musical chairs?

Did someone slip and fall? Did a participant indirectly cause someone else to get hurt? Did a participant indirectly cause himself/herself to get hurt? Was there only one person that got hurt? Are the injuries serious (permanent)? If not, will the injuries last 1 week? Up to 1 Month? More than a month? Is the injury report relevant?

Teenagers were playing tug-of-war? Was it at school? Is it relevant what kind of terrain they were playing on (mud, grass, concrete, basketball court)? Did anyone die? Could the accident be forseen (meaning, they knew what they were doing was dangerous for whatever reason, and they took their chances anyway? Was it someone's negligence that caused the accident? Was it someone's stupidity that caused the accident? Is time of day relevant? Was there an outside cause that contributed to the accident?

Was there something remarkable about the injury? About the fact that that particular type of injury happened in a tug-of-war game? About the dynamics of the injury?

Was it an accident? Could the hurt person have done anything to prevent the injury? Could any of the other players?

Do we need to find out more about the injury? Did the injury concern only one arm or both? Did the rope wind around the hurt person's arm(s)? Did the injury involve the upper arm? The forearm? The shoulder?

Hmmm... Had the person wound the rope around his wrist to get better grip? Around some other part of the arm? Did the rope give a sudden jerk? Did the rope cause fractures? Bleeding? ...amputation!?

I saw this on the news.
Arek pretty much has it above.
so many people wind the rope around their wrist when playing tug of war and can be very dangerous.
