A true vertical shot is not a major danger per Hatcher (Not zero but not major.)

But how many New Year's drunks have you seen with a plumb bob on their guns for "celebratory fire?" A shot fired in the air but off the vertical will carry out with a significant amount of its muzzle velocity remaining, enough to cause most of the cases you read about.
