12-year-old in US stabbed during fight with pal over Xbox

A 12-year-old boy in the US was accidentally stabbed while scuffling for a knife during an argument with his friend over an Xbox video game console.



New York: A 12-year-old boy in the US was accidentally stabbed while scuffling for a knife during an argument with his friend over an Xbox video game console.

The boy, from Queens in New York, was visiting his 13-year-old neighbour last week.

When he accused his older friend of having his Xbox video game console, the two boys got into a heated argument.

The older boy then whipped out a butter knife, police said.

The younger child attempted to grab the knife out of the teen`s hands and wound up accidentally stabbing himself in the stomach during the altercation, `New York Daily News` reported.

The victim ran home and told his aunt about the incident. She rushed him to a hospital with a small puncture wound.

He was listed in stable condition and cops were called.

"That boy is a very good child," neighbour Doreen White, said of the victim, who goes to school with her granddaughter.

"He never has a problem or beef with anybody. I never hear him out here fighting," she said.

The older boy admitted to holding the butter knife, and has been charged as a minor with menacing.
