Ap 503821937307SILVERHILL, Ala. (AP) – Police say an Alabama man is charged with assault and a 3-year-old girl is recovering after she was shot with an arrow while attending a graduation party. Silverhill police say a blunt-tipped arrow skipped off dirt and sailed over a fence near the party site Sunday night in Baldwin County. It stuck into the child’s chest, narrowly missing her heart. She was taken to a hospital by helicopter ambulance before being treated and released. Police say the man was practicing with a bow and arrow and did not mean to hurt anyone.
