    CHAPMANVILLE, W.Va. -- West Virginia State Police say a 15-year-old boy was killed while playing a game of "dodging arrows."

    Trooper Michael Baylous told news media that Caleb Fairchild was playing the game Saturday evening in Chapmanville when he was struck in the head by an arrow.

    The accident occurred on Lee Miller Road and police say they were called just after 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, CBS affiliate WVNS-TV reports.

    Baylous said Fairchild was taken to Logan Regional Medical Center, and then to Charleston Area Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

    Chapmanville Middle School, where the teen attended classes, had grief counselors on hand Monday to help students cope with the loss.

    Chapmanville?

    I can believe it.

    Maybe they were just trying to recreate the scene from this weeks Walking Dead?

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't just a bit disappointed that there was no accompanying video...

    I had my cousin shoot me with a BB gun. I learned three things that day.
    I wasn't as fast as I thought I was.
    My cousin was a good shot
    Getting shot with a BB gun really hurts.

    It's West Virginia. This is how they keep the herd population under control.

    A good buddy of mine in Jr. High school had twin brothers who were a year younger. On Christmas Day, one of them got a bow & arrow as a gift. Just like in A Christmas Story, he shot somebody's eye out with that... his twin brother. The kid didn't die, but they were both pretty fucked up by the experience.

    I was riding my bicycle around the neighborhood through some vacant lots and some kid was shooting an arrow up into the air, like straight up, so I mentioned to him that it probably wasn't a bright idea... he told me to fuck off... like you're standing there trying to spot the arrow and it drops straight down into your eye socket? Genius.

    @LawyerLarry would have caught it than tossed at back at him and killed him with it. the arrow would never have got near @ClintDagger because he is always surrounded by at least 3 perfect women. @ShutUpSitDown would have figured out the speed and trajectory of it and casually stepped aside. @Devil's Backbone would be drinking with @Biff Dibiase and i and most bars do not allow bows and arrows. Larry inc. still the best.
