(SAN GABRIEL VALLEY TRIBUNE)┬áSOUTH EL MONTE – An innocent game of tug-of-war turned tragic Monday afternoon when two South El Monte High School students had their fingers severed.

Tug-of-war is a competitive game in which two teams pull, or tug, on a rope in opposite directions in a show of strength.

The students, a boy and a girl, were participating in the lunchtime Spirit Week activity celebrating homecoming when they were injured, El Monte Union High School District Assistant Superintendent Edward Zuniga said. Neither he nor other district officials would release the students’ names or ages.
