Football is a violent, dangerous sport. It appears that level of danger isn’t restricted to the playing field, either.
The Associated Press reports that a woman attending Saturday’s game between New Mexico and New Mexico State was hit by a stray bullet coming from outside the stadium. The trajectory of the bullet was reported to be consistent with one being fired into the air and coming back down.
The woman said she felt what she thought was a bug bite, conjuring “Forrest Gump” references in the minds of many.
But, more seriously, the woman is doing alright.
New Mexico beat New Mexico State, 27-14.
