LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — Israel’s Daniel Samohin was taken to a local hospital after dislocating his left shoulder in a fall during his free skate at Skate America on Saturday.

Samohin, the 2016 World junior champion, fell on his first two jump attempts, appearing to suffer the injury on the latter, a quadruple Salchow.

He lay on the ice trying to extend his arm for about 10 seconds before calling for help. Samohin skated off the ice by himself, holding the shoulder, and walked out of the competition area.

Samohin, 19, was in fifth place after the short program. He was 12th at his Grand Prix season debut in Russia in September.
