Yes, she gets hurt, but anyone who didn't have a note to get out of gym class has probably been whomped in the face at some point. It's a pain that fades, yet the lesson you learn is forever: PAY ATTENTION WHEN THERE ARE BALLS FLYING EVERYWHERE.
It's more annoying that she's in almost the front row of a live basketball game and looking at Seamless or something. It's like sitting next to someone in a movie theatre and they're just texting the whole time. How much did you pay to be here?!
In her defense, that ball was coming at her really fast. Everyone around is watching and they all move to intercept it, but there's no chance. That's why you gotta be ready to block, lady. With your arms. There's no app for that.
