Fox News 5 days ago

A re-enactor of medieval events died on Saturday after he apparently impaled himself with his own lance during a performance.

Peter Barclay, 53, was competing at an equestrian event in Kentucky when his spear hit the ground while he was trying to hit a paper plane on the ground, WRC-TV reported. The lance reportedly flipped before stabbing him in the chest.

Barclay was identified by the Society for Creative Anachronism (ACA) — the organization which hosted the equestrian game — as the society's marshal, "Master Terafan Greydragon."

He was a "brother in arms to many of us [and] lost his life in the pursuit of our game," the group wrote on Facebook.
