Boy dies after friends imitate Naruto

Innocent game of playacting turns deadly when kids bury friend in sandbox.

A family is in mourning after an accident in a playground left their 10-year-old dead.



The titular character from the popular anime Naruto.
Codey Porter of Everett, Washington, a suburb of Seattle, died on Saturday after friends buried him in a sandbox, according to The Seattle Post Intelligencer. The boys were apparently imitating the popular anime show Naruto.

The children were allegedly reenacting one of the show's character's special attacks, where the target is enveloped in sand. Though the boy thrashed around when he couldn't breathe, his friends apparently thought he was joking and didn't pull him out until damage had already been done. He died later in a hospital, surrounded by his family.

Though the incident seems like a perfect lightning rod for watchdog groups to curse Naruto and call for its end, the general consensus is the death is simply the result of a tragic accident.

Naruto is a wildly popular cartoon imported from Japan that follows young ninjas. It currently airs on the Cartoon Network.

Don't they realize Gaara is a killer? Didn't they stop to think that it might kill him? Makes you wonder if kids are getting smarter or stupider as time goes on. Even at 5, they should be able to tell whats a good move and whats not.

OMG That kid is so stupid.I mean he's 10 and he let his friend kill him?
