My understanding was that arrows are dead after they hit the first person. 

The bounceback controversy supposes that an arrow could bounce off a solid
object (shield, body) and the butt (nock) end could enter a fighter's
faceplate, possibly damaging the eyes.

To my knowledge, this has never actually happened.
