DANA POINT, Calif. (AP) — Two people taking part in a mock battle at a California tall ship festival were hit with real ammunition and left with minor injuries when buckshot was loaded into one ship's cannon instead of blanks.
The Amazing Grace, a tall ship based in Washington state, fired at the vessel Bill of Rights, hitting two people onboard during a Dana Point festival that celebrates 19th century seafaring, authorities told the Orange County Register.
One of the people who was hit, Bill of Rights deckhand Donna Reed, said she was struck in the legs by multiple pellets.
"It was like a scene from 'The Exorcist'," Reed told the Los Angeles Times. "I started to bleed in several different areas."
