Girl, 10, dies after being hit by stray bullet on New Year's Eve1/4/2013
Never celebrate anything by firing your gun into the air. Seriously. Aaliyah Boyer, a 10-year-old from Manheim, Pa., died on Thursday after she was struck by a stray falling bullet that hit her on New Year's Eve while she was visiting family in Elkton, Md. Her aunt, Ashley Rice, said Aaliyah suddenly collapsed shortly after a midnight fireworks display. "At first we were like, 'Hey, what are you doing on the ground? Get up!' And she didn't get up," Rice said. Even more tragically, Aaliyah's home was broken into while her family was at her side in hospital, and thieves made off with the Boyers' Christmas gifts.
