Eight Ball is wounded by an enemy sniper in the film Full Metal Jacket. When the platoon Corpsman, Doc Jay, runs out to rescue him, he knows that he is walking directly into a Vietcong sniper’s trap. Wounding an enemy, and then waiting for his friends to come rescue him is a pretty well known trick.
We get to see this happen in real life in the video below. A sniper from the Syrian army wounds one terrorist, and just waits for others to show up. When they reveal their position to try and pull their friend out of the kill zone, the sniper opens fire. His trap is a success, and he get’s an additional fighter.
