Urban legend or Reality?

Deaths from paintball. Besides that tourney guy that got shot in the back of the head a couple months ago, (He died from something like the shock from being hit, not the hit itself), has anyone ever really died from paintball? Like getting shot in the throat or anything??
Playing since '95
Current Setup:
TiPX +
Autococker (built from scratch myself back in the day!)

I believe the guy suffered from severe Migranes, and it was about 3 days after that hit to the head.
Could've, and probably would have happened with something else. Just so happened to happen then and there.

So I don't really think it can be considered a paintball death, technically. But I'm sure there's probably somebody out there that died of heat stroke or something.

The paintball did nothing to him. He was syuprised by the guy that shot him and turned his head around too fast and ruptured a blood vessel in his brain. If he hadnt have turned his head nothing would have happened. Other than that no one has died from paintball.
