Archer Has An Arrow Escape

Source: Ananova

A Chinese schoolboy had an amazing escape after being shot through the eye with an arrow by a pal.

An x-ray shows the arrow through Liu Cheong's skull.

Teachers at Jiutai City school believe the young archers were practicing on their own when the accident happened.

The arrow went through 11-year-old Liu Cheong's eye socket, completely through his head and was only stopped by the back of his skull.

"If the arrow had been shot with just a bit more force, it would have come out the back of his head," said doctors at Jida Hospital in Changchun, eastern China.

The boy only survived because the arrow miraculously missed his brain.

I remember archery in school. You stood there and shot at a target miles away!
How can you hit another student!?
