A pillow fight held at the United States Military Academy left 30 injured after cadets stuffed helmets and other hard objects into the pillow cases!
Although the cadets were given helmets for safety reasons, it appears that these were just used to stuff the pillows!
It’s reported some cadets suffered broken bones and one was even knocked unconscious!
The event is part of a tradition for 1st year students at the prestigious NY Academy to build camaraderie and blow off steam after a summer of rigorous drills and exercises, and is said to date back to at least 1897.
Although the matter is being investigated, it’s reported that no cadets were punished and there are no plans to cancel the tradition.
