Man Shot While Flying Over Jax on New Year’s Eve

by Sam Ranard

In an attempt to get the best possible view of Jacksonvilles’s New Year’s Eve fireworks, pilot Graham Hill decided to take his girlfriend on a flight over the Bold City. Unfortunately, as Hill flew over EverBank Field, some genius decided that carelessly firing his weapon into the air at the stroke of midnight was the best way to spread the joy of the new year.

To the surprise of many, aimlessly firing a deadly weapon turned out to be a terrible idea. The stray bullet not only hit Hill’s plane, but hit Hill’s head. “We were just north of the football stadium, at 1,200 feet when there was a loud pop,” Hill said, “And that’s when I noticed the bullet hole… I felt blood running down my neck.” Read the entire story here.
