A rock chip killed teen hunter

A ricocheting rock fragment, not a bullet from a hunting rifle, killed 16-year-old Ryan Dankwerts during a hunting trip near East London on Saturday. Ryan's father, John, told Die Burger a post-mortem had found that a rock fragment hit his son under the ear. Ryan was one of a group of 13 relatives and friends who went hunting on his uncle's farm. He died instantly after being hit by the fragment. Dankwerts said no one could be blamed for his son's death, as it was a freak accident. The accident happened when the group of hunters spotted a bushbuck and all shot at the animal.
