30, injured after pillow fight

An annual pillow fight among freshman at the United States Military Academy turned violent and left 30 cadets injured, The New York Times reported on Friday.

The event, part of a tradition for first-year students at the service academy in West Point, New York, is intended as a way to help them blow off steam and build morale after a summer spent preparing for a grueling programme, the newspaper reported.
But instead, the fight turned bloody after many of the cadets stuffed helmets and other hard objects into the pillow cases, resulting in concussions and broken boness.
