    Default A kid dies trying to copy Naruto

    "EVERETT -- In the fantasy world of animated ninja warriors, the superheroes sometimes slip away from bad guys by hiding in the sand.

    No superhero could rescue a 10-year-old Everett boy who died Monday after trying to recreate the trick.

    Codey Porter apparently was mimicking Japanese anime superheroes Saturday when he asked friends to bury him in a backyard sandbox. He stopped breathing.

    The fifth-grader died Monday afternoon at Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center in Seattle.

    "He passed peacefully, with his family at his side," the boy's family said in a statement released late Monday. "We appreciate all the support and prayers that we have received. We have decided to honor Codey's memory by making him an organ donor, and a miracle for another family."

    Codey was a bright, imaginative boy with many friends, said Patricia Gauksheim, principal at Silver Firs Elementary School, where Codey was a student.

    Snohomish County sheriff's detectives determined Saturday's incident was a tragic accident, spokeswoman Rebecca Hover said.

    Codey was playing with five other children in a friend's back yard Saturday when he was buried, Hover said.

    Playmates told adults the boy was recreating a scene from "Naruto," a popular Japanese animated cartoon show, said Joshua Quantrille, 30, Codey's half brother. One character, Gaara of the Sand, fights by immobilizing opponents in the sand.

    When the other children realized something was wrong, they pulled Codey out, Hover said. Adults performed CPR until aid arrived. The boy was whisked to an Everett hospital and later flown by helicopter to Children's."

    may he rest in peace

    Figured I'd just quote my take on this from the previous thread in the Naruto section.

    there's a thread like this on the naruto section already.

    the general consensus ? it's the kid's (or parent) fault

    anime is so obviously not to blame

    Of course it isn't anime's fault -- it's D&D's!
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    ^A very slight improvement. There's still more than 20 million idiots out there in the world.
    Innocence proves nothing.
