What could be more wholesome than a good old-fashioned snowball fight? In Scotland, however, a romp in the snow turned lethal when a 10-year-old boy died after being crushed by a giant ball of snow that rolled down a hill and engulfed him. Said a local minister, “It seems there was a giant snowball the boys had made themselves. Apparently it rolled and unfortunately Peter was caught under it.” Police have confirmed there was no foul play. “The boys had just gone out there to play and then something like this happens. It’s very difficult to find words to explain it all,” added the minister.
