    A 6-year-old New Jersey girl struck by a downed soccer goal post is still recovering in the hospital, more than a week after the accident fractured her skull and lower back. 

    Giselle Caputo was playing on the soccer field at Howell Middle School North when a strong gust of wind knocked over the goal post and crashed into her. 

    "A big gust of wind came up and we heard a noise and all went running like demons," Caputo's grandmother, Mary Russo said. 

    Caputo suffered a concussion, fractures to her skull and almost lost her eye, her mother said.
