VT: Bow Hunting Accident

From Reddit.com
October 14, 2001

BURLINGTON, Vermont — An Underhill man shot in the back of the head with an arrow while bow hunting is recovering slowly, according to his family members.
Ron Derouchie, 24, was recovering at home Friday, Oct. 12, after his brother, Brian, 22, fired an arrow into the back of his head. The arrow penetrated Ron Derouchie's skull and pierced his brain, stepmother Wendy Derouchie said.
"He has a lot of headaches," Wendy Derouchie said.
The brothers were hunting deer at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Underhill when the incident occurred, said Lt. Robert Rooks.
When Ron Derouchie shot, he bumped his brother, who had drawn his arrow back and was preparing to release it. The bump caused Brian Derouchie to swivel as he was shooting, and the arrow hit Ron Derouchie in the back of his head.
Surgeons spent three hours removing the arrow.
