A man in Northern Kentucky died over the weekend after being impaled by his lance during a medieval-themed equestrian game, according to media reports.
Peter Barclay, 52, of Virginia was performing a trick when the accident occurred on Saturday in Williamstown, Cincinnati news station WLWT 5 reported. He died while being flown to a hospital, according to the news station.
Barclay was also known as Master Terafan Greydragon, according to the Society for Creative Anachronism. The organization posted on Facebook Sunday that they are investigating what led up to the accident, and what can be done to prevent anything similar from happening in the future.
The Society for Creative Anachronism is an international organization with more than 30,000 members that is focused on “researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe,” according to its website.
