An 11-year old, Connor Minto has miraculously survived a bullet shot to his head while waiting to be substituted during a rugby game.

The minor was shot during a game in Chester-le-Street in Sunderland when he was hit by an air rifle pellet, with the bullet narrowly missing his left eye.

A police officer, Detective Constable Andy Froggatt said: “Connor was standing next to the nets with some other boys watching a nearby rugby game when he felt what he thought was a stone hit his head. He ran to his dad because he could feel blood and his dad could see that a .22 pellet was lodged in Connor’s forehead just above his left eye. This was a very serious incident. The photos clearly show how nasty the injury was, but it could have been much worse if the pellet had hit the Connor’s eye.”

Minto is receiving treatment and recovering from his wounds.
