[AP, Mammoth Lakes, CA] A San Anselmo man
   died yesterday when he hit a lift tower at the
   Mammoth mountain ski area while riding down the
   slope on a foam pad, authorities said. Matthew
   David Hubal, 22, was pronounced dead at Centinela
   Mammoth Hospital. The accident occurred about 3
   a.m. The Mono County Sheriff's Department said
   Hubal and his friends had apparently hiked up a
   ski run called Stump Alley and undid some yellow
   foam protectors from the lift towers. Lieutenant
   Mike Donnelly of the Mammoth Lakes Police
   Department said the pads are used to protect
   skiers who might hit the towers. The group
   apparently used the pads to slide down the ski
   slope and Hubal crashed into a tower. It has
   since been investigated that the tower he hit was
   the one with its pad removed.

[Associated Press,Kincaid, W. VA] A man at a
   party popped a blasting cap into his mouth and bit
   down, triggering an explosion that blew off his
   lips, teeth and tongue, state police said
   Wednesday. Jerry Stromyer, 24, of Kincaid, bit the
   blasting cap as a prank during a party late
   Tuesday night, said Cpl. M.D. Payne. "Another man
   had it in an aquarium, hooked to a battery, and
   was trying to explode it," Payne said. "It
   wouldn't go off and this guy said, "I'll show you
   how to set it off." "He put it in his mouth and
   bit down. It blew all his teeth off, his tongue
   and his lips," Payne said. Stromyer was listed in
   guarded condition Wednesday with extensive facial
   injuries, according to a spokesman at Charleston
   Area Medical Division. "I just can't imagine
   anyone doing something like that," Payne said.

[UPI,Portland, OR] Doctors at Portland's
   University Hospital said Wednesday an Oregon man
   shot through the skull by a hunting arrow is lucky
   to be alive, and will be released soon from the
   hospital. Tony Roberts, 25, lost his right eye
   last weekend during an initiation into a men's
   rafting club, Mountain Men Anonymous, in Grants
   Pass,Ore. A friend tried to shoot a beer can off
   his head, but the arrow entered Roberts' right
   eye. Doctors said had the arrow gone 1 millimeter
   to the left, a major blood vessel would have cut
   and Roberts would have died instantly.
   Neurosurgeon Dr. Johnny Delashaw at the University
   Hospital in Portland said the arrow went through 8
   to 10 inches of brain, with the tip protruding at
   the rear of his skull, yet somehow managed to miss
   all major blood vessels. Delashaw also said had
   Robert tried to pull the arrow out on his own he
   surely would have killed himself. Roberts admitted
   afterwards he and his friends had been drinking
   that afternoon. Said Roberts, "I feel so
   dumb about this." (I would feel 'dumb' too if that
   much of my brain had been skewered - KEB)
   No charges have been filed but the Josephine County
   district attorney's office said the initiation stunt
   is under investigation.
