The child was injured while playing with friends and he apparently had the stick on to his back when the mishap occurred.
A friend said that the boy had jumped and that the makeshift spear went through his neck when he hit the ground. "The stick must have went forward," the friend, said.
The stick reportedly went through the boys's neck and exited 3 inches behind his left ear. He was rushed to hospital, but no arteries were hit as luck would have it.
