Man claims campground had contract duty to protect him from water balloon

A A New Hampshire man who suffered injuries when he was hit by a water balloon fired by a slingshot is suing his campground, claiming that the facility owed a duty to protect him from being attacked.

Things apparently get rowdly on Maine's Saco River during the summertime The plaintiff was taying at the Fiddlehead Campground (left), which advised residents to  " 'avoid rowdy groups canoeing on the river' by staying at the campground, where campers agree to standard campground groups that 'help control noise and unruly behavior."  Plaintiff nevertheless was hit in the eye by a water balloon launched 67 feet away by three men using a large slingshot.  He is apparently claiming that the campground's advice created a promise that he would be safe if he stayed there.
