Errant arrow pierces man's head
Associated Press — Oct. 14, 2001
BURLINGTON, Vermont — An Underhill man shot in the back of the head with an arrow while bow hunting is recovering slowly, according to his family members.
Ron Derouchie, 24, was recovering at home Friday, Oct. 12, after his brother, Brian, 22, fired an arrow into the back of his head.
The arrow penetrated Ron Derouchie's skull and pierced his brain, stepmother Wendy Derouchie said.
The family is worried about whether the arrow caused lasting vision damage.
Ron Derouchie is having trouble sleeping and not feeling well, but his outlook is good, she said.
"He has a lot of headaches," Wendy Derouchie said. "He gets really tired."
The brothers were hunting deer at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Underhill when the incident occurred, said Lt. Robert Rooks, acting chief of law enforcement for the Fish and Wildlife Department.
Police are treating the incident as accidental.
When Ron Derouchie shot, he bumped his brother, who had drawn his arrow back and was preparing to release it, Rooks said. The bump caused Brian Derouchie to swivel as he was shooting, and the arrow hit Ron Derouchie in the back of his head, Rooks said.
The fact that the brothers were standing close together prevented the accident from being worse, Rooks said.
"The arrow wasn't able to gain the momentum that it would, had it actually been released," he said.
Ron Derouchie remained conscious and walked from the woods with his brother, who was shaken by the incident, Wendy Derouchie said.
"As they came out of the woods, Ron was calming Brian down," she said.
Surgeons spent three hours removing the arrow.

Yes... much worse... another time maybe? I don't want to take anything away from the pic though, you certainly don't see that everyday- especially with an arrow.
