A 10 year old boy in Everett, Washington was hospitalized after being buried by people imitating Naruto. The boy was buried head first in a sandbox in a 1 foot (30.48cm) deep sandbox. He was buried from his head to his chest in the sand; he supposedly started thrashing, but the other kids just thought he was playing. When they finally got him out, they had to perform CPR until the ambulance was able to take him to the hospital. The boy is currently listed in critical condition.

It seems that the boy has been pronounced dead after being in the hospital in critical condition.
"He passed peacefully, with his family at his side," the boy's family said in a statement. "We appreciate all the support and prayers that we have received."

Shit, the kid actually died? Now I feel really bad for that natural selection comment...Still, humour is a natural psychological response to death. My condolences to the family.

I guess there is no more need of making fun of that kid.
You know... he is dead...... He didn't even have time to regret.....
If this keeps up this might end in something serious...

Lets just end up with this. It already passed more than 20 days.....

If you guys are planning to argue about how to raise children or stuff, create a new topic.
