Re: He should be lucky

it was a recurve and not a compound bow

My exact thought. If it was something like my eight year old daughter's "toy" that person would have had a shattered pelvis or hipbone (even with the "harmless" training arrows). Even a "junior" compound bow for kids makes nice 9mm holes in 18mm plywood.
