WILMINGTON, Del (NBC) - In what police called one of the "stranger reported cases oflate," a man was allegedly hit by a dart while biking Tuesdaymorning in Delaware.
Dan Wilson, 36, called 9-1-1 to report that he was struck bya dart while riding his bike around 11 a.m.
"All of the sudden I feel, it feels like a really big beesting," described the Wilmington man.
Wilson was riding his bike northbound on Route 7 inWilmington when he suddenly felt pain in his right leg.
He looked down to find a four-inch blow dart sticking out of histhigh.
The dart was so deep, he couldn't get it out with one tug.
"I keep pulling it and pulling it and it was a good two inches,two and a half inches lodged in there," Wilson said.
"It was like a scene out of Indiana Jones," said DSP Cpl. JeffWhitmarsh.
Since the attack happened suddenly, Wilson didn't seemuch.
He only remembered seeing a full-size pick up truck drive by onRoute 7 when he was hit by the dart.
Wilson was treated by his family doctor.
While he can laugh now, the man said he doesn't want to thinkwhat would happen if the dart would have wound up somewhereelse.
"If that had hit me in the neck...that could have been bad," hesaid.
There was a twist -- this wasn't the only alleged blow dartattack this week in the First State.
After hearing about the Route 7 attack, a woman contacted StatePolice to let them know that she was hit by a blow dart whilebiking in Bear, Delaware on Monday.
She felt something hit her neck but only noticed the dart afterreturning home, police said.
It wasn't clear if the two attacks were connected.
