That isnt dying from paintball, that's paintball aggrivating an existing injury (a brain aneurysm is when you have a thin/bulging vein or artery on the outside of your brain.) A brain aneurysm kills you when it pops, and i guess this guy got ricked in the temple and his aneurysm busted. This isnt really paintball killing the guy. Saying that is like saying a jogger with asthma passed out and died while jogging. Jogging didnt kill him, asthma killed him.
Anyways, worst injury i saw was a busted toenail. A few friends and I are walking back from my buddy's pool all carrying markers, when one of them (not being carefull since he didnt have any more paint in his hopper
) shoots himself right in the toe. It was a mess.
