An 11 year old named Noah (pictured above) in Bellevue, Washington – just outside of Seattle – was asked to punch Seattle’s defacto superhero Phoenix Jones while Phoenix was doing a talk at the kid’s school. Phoenix asked the little dude to punch him, saying “OK, give me all you got…give me your best punch, but wait, but don’t do it too hard, you might get hurt.”
So he did. And now he has a broken finger.
Apparently, the children were asking to punch the armor, which Jones said is “rubberized and bullet-proof,” but apparently not kid-fingerbone-proof. Check out the full story at Seattle PI. Noah, whose last name was not given, is apparently recovering fine.
