    Natural selection at work.

    Seriously, what kind of kid gets hurt in a sandbox that`s only a foot deep? I don`t think I could have managed that if I had TRIED when I was in 5th grade...

    I bet this is the reason the mother in one of the earlier postings wouldn`t let her kid go to the sandbox.

    Sandbox? no. Sandbox? no. Chicken? sure. Sandbox? no.

    Wow, a kid copied something he saw on tv. How unusual. I don`t know any kids who have tried to fly like superman and broken their arm. What I don`t get was why he didn`t just sit up when he had trouble breathing. The sand covering his face couldn`t have been more than a few inches deep.

    And if that is "disturbing footage" well damn, every kid on the planet must be disturbed.

    Maybe the other kids held him under or something, its the only reason I can think of why he didnt just get up when he realised he couldnt breath properly.

    Natural selection, I agree.

    I hate how they say the show is "disturbing" because of Sand Monsters. Get real... It`s a kid`s show.

    Why a kid would bury himself and why the friends would leave him underground for that long is beyond me...

    I wonder if it was the same kid from that other video?

    I grew up watching Bugs Bunny and Woody Woodpecker. I wasn`t going around shooting people in the face or dropping and anvil on anybody`s head. These kids were just stupid.

    I agree with Yankee...These kids were just stupid. My goodness, how does that happen to a 5th grader?! I could understand it for a 3 year old, but...
    And now there`s gonna be a big frenzy over it, and naruto will prolly suffer.
    I like that show! (Though I`m into the subs now...)
    Seriously, though, I don`t think the show`s meant for 10 year old`s anyway. Cartoon Network DID tone it down, but it`s probably a little violent by today`s standards.

    if burying an action figure is "a disturbing image" and if cartoons are "casing kids to hurt themselves/others" we all need to sit perfectly still in padded rooms with our thumbs up our buts...oh wait that might cause some rectal problems .....

    News sucks ass, wants to make everything look dangerous. I guess if Fox had their way they would advise every parent to lock up their kids in a metal cage else they could potentially get hurted. It`s rediculous, think about the odds ? Many of these accidents happen to maybe 10 children, of howmany ? 50 miljon in the US about the same age ? The point is it`s less then 1%, but I think alot of you guys already realise that.

    Four words. Stupidity in the making.

    I have to say that the parents can`t blame that it is the fault of the anime. They have the right to choose what their children can watch. So like I said, stupidity on their part.

    You just know the parents and/or school are gonna point fingers at the cartoon first. No parent ever seems willing to take the blame for their own faults.

    And the school just doesn`t want to get sued for not watching the stupid kid properly.

    Naruto blows major chunks in my own opinion, but I am really starting to get sick of TV, Movies and videogames getting blamed constantly whenever somebody`s kid does something bad. People don`t want to face the fact that they`re just really bad parents.

    I know it`s cruel `cos the kid got hurt (and died?? dunno) but I seriously couldn`t contain myself upon hearing of the STUPIDITY.

    1 foot of sand? In 5th grade (I`m gonna assume that`s around 10 years old, we don`t have "grades" in England...).

    How the hell do you manage that!?

    "Just listen to what they say" WE WILL BURY YOU IN THE GRUESOME SAND!! Ah cover your ears!!

    When I was 10 me an my friends rollerbladed off of their rooftop. We played with ninja stars, BB guns, and real bows and arrows. We went down massive hills face first on skateboards. And I think once tried to jump from their roof onto their trampoline. We ran with sharp objects, played with knives, and probably sniffed glue just to see why we shouldn`t. I`ve got a few scars to prove I survived childhood.
    Kids will be kids. And kids will be stupid. That`s why parents should actually be around.

    they kept sayin nawrooto

    anyway why do they always blame cartoons and video games
    the parents should have been there and should monitor what their kids watch on TV

    are all 10 year olds really this stupid now
    if your head is burried under something for more than 1 min chances are you arent playing anymore
    they had 4 min to get him out and they just stood there

    First, he didn`t die. He`s just in critical condition.

    Also, the "horrifying" footage from the cartoon was pretty tame in my opinion. It`s an animation! I`ve seen worse.

    I also thought that the youtube footage was irrelevant. They pulled up what is probably the only video that is semi-related to this incident, in an effort to portray kids barrying eachother in the sand as a major problem.

    i agree wuth catlikegrace on the pronounciation, and the news needs to stop blaming the cartoons for how stupid kids are. "wow a fictional character got covered in sand lets bury myself head first in it so i can become like that" yeh its all the shows fault, totally the shows, couldnt have possibly been that retarded idea. plus, naruto is awesome.

    Let`s face it, all kids play. They pretend to be who they look up to even if that person is a fictional cartoon character. I pretended to be stormshadow when i was a kid. I even borrowed my mom`s white winter scarf to wrap around like a mask, it`s what kids do. The problem here is that they lacked the sense to know their limitations. There are plenty of those kids too. I remember when i was a kid hearing stories about killing themselves because they thought they could fly or whatever. These are things that will forever pass down through history. It`s not the cartoon/show/book/comic`s fault that a kid doesn`t have common sense. And it is not necessarily the parent`s fault either. Some people just don`t have common sense. This will carry through with them even into adulthood. Watch the news, adults are just as guilty...

    "Disturbing" and "horrifying" are just pop words to sell ratings. They could do a segment about a new kind of sugar cookie and call it "horrifyingly delicious" and they`d get bigger ratings.

    I ran across this one on ED a while ago. Definitely old. What really gets me is that news people can`t seem to pronounce things correctly. "Nuh-ru-do." NO. I think I remember the news clip on the ED article called the show "Narutu Sand Ninjas." Clearly they are not in touch with the younger generation AT ALL.

    when I was 6 or 7 years old I was on my bed, put my feet on the wall and launched myself off, hit the edge of a table and tore my lip apart, I told my parents I was trying to be like Banjo-Kazooie (N64 game), they sat me down after I got stitches and told me that copying video games is dangerous cause they`re not real, and I stopped doing stupid stuff like that. Moral of the story:the kid should`ve stood up when he had trouble breathing, its tragic but it`s his and his `friends` fault.

    1. Why can`t these people ever find out how to pronounce things correctly..."Nah Roo doe," pfft.

    2. I hate these kinds of news stories because it scares parents unnecessarily. Don`t let your kids play video games or they will kill but don`t let your kids play in a sandbox or they will die. So don`t let your kids do anything and they will be ok!? I think not!

    Lets play the blame game!

    Who are we going to blame now?

    The TV for portraying such disgustingly sick images to youngsters on TV?

    The Ignorant City for Making Sandboxes too deep where kids can be buried in them?

    Or The Innocent Perants for not monitoring the kids in the playground or what they watched?

    i am sorry the poor kid is hurt but come on! they should know that its not real. like when finding nemo came out and some kids kept buying clown fish to set them free and it turned out the were killing them.
    also when they showed the video of the kids playing in the sand with their action figures...who hasn`t! i didn`t hear anything that disturbing either. just something about being buried in the sand and a few sprinkles of sand

    Firstly, naruto doesn`t suck. It just doesn`t fit YOUR criteria for good cartoons.

    Second of all, I`m an anime fanatic. You don`t see me trying to focus chakra to run up a wall, or try to see through walls with the Byakugan technique. It`s just stupidity of kids these days.

    Cartoons like these shouldn`t be blamed for kid`s actions, it was their choice to make. And while everyone is out there blaming the cartoon, where were the parents while he buried himslef in the sand?

    He`s not dead, just in critical condition.

    And seriously, WTF? I gotta say, I`d be thoroughly disturbed if my child was buring Naruto action figures in the sand. Don`t these children understand that these are non-living, non-breathing beings? And where action figure burial is, manslaughter is NEVER far behind.

    Proper headlines should have said:

    "Stupid kid die after burrying himself probably because he watched some meaningless cartoon show on TV."

    How can you even be sure that he was trying to imitate Naruto... maybe his friend was bullying him and had the brillent idea of burrying him in the sand... or maybe some sort of april`s fool joke that turned ugly.

    IT`S NARUTO`S FAULT, KILL THE SHOW KILL THE SHOW!

    But yheh, they should kill the show anyway but they should do it because it suck.

    all the kool kids watch DBZ.. duh. its wayy more hardcore.

    anyways. it they burried him head first, dont you think his friends would have noticed if he started screaming and flailing as screams started emitting from the not fully covered head? dont you think he would have gotten up? this was way more than an accident. sounds like murder.

    oh yes... a kid playing death scenes... how terrible.. like cowboys and indians and pretending to shoot each other is more innocent?? Granted the kid who DIDN`T DIE and is in CRITICAL CONDITION is a sad story... but kids always get get hurt when they play games. How many jungle gyms have given countless kids broken bones??
    Plus it`s Na-ru-toh not Na-ROO-toh. Adults really should take more responsibility before blaming a cartoon.

    I think there was more to the story than kids imitating a cartoon. Long before Naruto, my friend and I buried our toys in the sand and buried each other. The kid wasn`t even that young, and should have known better than to let himself get buried. People like to blame cartoons for everything, even though stuff like this has been happening long before they ever came on the air.

    Ah, well. Blame the toy companies that market Naruto at this age group.

    Parent`s should watch their children more closely to see how impressionable they are. Not all 10 year olds are gonna be stupid enough to copy a cartoon, but those who are...Eck.
