Authorities say a young girl was hospitalized after her arm was impaled on a fence outside the governor's mansion.

Local media report the incident happened around 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Officials said the girl was walking along the ornamental fence toward the mansion entrance when it happened. Responders cut the fence and transported the girl to a hospital with a piece still in place so doctors could remove it.

KOMU-TV reports the fourth-grader was there on a school trip.

Her condition wasn't immediately known.
