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.





POOR BOY..I FELL BAD FOR HIM....

Talk about an overrated show gone wild, eh? But seriously, I guess I'll feel sorry for the person that died. But I guess this can be considered as a "wake up call" as well.

This is old news..I think you can still find this topic somewhere in this forums.

I don't feel bad about it though, It's those kids fault anyway, even if they are still young they should know that there is a HUGE difference between Anime and Reality and doing those kinds of things are very dangerous

flame me all you want..but still I wont change my opinion

EDIT: I don't watch Naruto so don't say I'm protecting this anime, it's just that I find those kids at fault

Why would his friends think he's joking? It's obvious you can't breathe under sand.

I completly agree with you although i feel sorry for the kid his parents shouldn't be letting him watch it if he can't tell the difference from reality and anime.
