An unfortunate theme park goer in Yamaguchi Prefecture got more than he bargained for on Friday. As whilst waiting for a grass slide ride, the 54-year-old man was hit just above the eye by an arrow. And after narrowly avoiding being blinded by the 73 cm long projectile, the man was nearly hit a second time, as another arrow landed about 10 metres away from him.
The New Zealand Village theme park where the incident occurred does actually boast an archery site (which combined with the aforementioned grass slide must make it a real magnet for excitement seekers). The only problem is, it’s located a lengthy 33 metres from where the arrows landed.
Police are now trying to figure out if someone intentionally fired the arrows at the grassy slide area, or whether their aim was just absolutely bloody awful.
