CAMPBELLSPORT, Wis., May 23 (UPI) -- Authorities in Wisconsin have offered a $500 reward for information leading to the person who shot an arrow that struck a 7-year-old girl, hospitalizing her
Aryanna Schneeberg was outside of her Campbellsport home playing with a doll and buggy Sunday when she was shot in the back by an arrow. She girl underwent 2 1/2 hours of surgery at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin to repair damage to her left lung, spleen, stomach, diaphragm and liver.
Doctors upgraded Aryanna's condition to fair Tuesday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Wednesday.
"Had we changed the trajectory of that arrow by as little as 2 centimeters this could have been a very bad outcome," said Dr. John Densmore of Children's Hospital.
Investigators don't believe Aryanna was the intended target of the arrow, but are searching for the person who shot it. Police confiscated a bow and arrow set from a man who lives near the Schneebergs' home, WTMJ-AM, Milwaukee, reported.
"She's mad. She wants to know why this happened to her when she didn't do anything wrong," the girl's mother, Laura Beth Schneeberg said.
