Well, today while at a friend's, I get a call from my dad (he's away for a week) saying to get to the hospital, as my niece had been shot with a .22 rifle in the neck, at my house. So I go there, and learn my sister (her mother) had been mowing our lawn, and my nephew (10 yrs old) had gone into our house to get food, and heard my niece crying. He found the gun on the floor, and her bleeding everywhere. She was brought to the hospital and then life flighted 90 miles away to Sioux Falls. Right now she's in the children's ER. The bullet entered by her right jaw and exited under her left ear. She's apparently doing okay now but has surgery coming up. We've all been trying to figure out how she could've shot herself, and nothing makes sense. But my niece apparently mumbled on the ride to the hospital asking why my nephew did this to him..so we kind of suspect he may have done it. Why? No idea. All in all, the situation's pretty ****ed. I just needed to get that out. Anyone else experienced something like this?


tl;dr : my 6 yr old niece was shot at my home today
#2
shit, dude. that is awful.

i feel for your entire family. wow. i'm really sorry.
#4
Where did they get the gun? Why wasn't it locked up? Was it already loaded, if not how does a 10 year old know how to load a rifle? Anyways, sorry to hear that. My best wishes that she gets heals up.
#5
That's seriously screwed up. I'm so sorry, I'd keep an eye on your nephew until this gets sorted out.


Hey, you're from Iowa too! I live in the very southeast corner. I almost got killed by a fourwheeler last year, I got life flighted to Iowa City. Shit's no fun.

this is why parents need to keep their guns in a safe location and teach their kids respect for the tools.

As sorry as I am for what happened, this all could have been avoided with a little responsibility. It's a gun.

The gun was in an open gun cabinet that didn't have a door on it. No idea why my dad would have a loaded gun. Probably because he's a paranoid hardcore conservative.
#19
Oh my god I'm so sorry, best of luck to you and your family and most of all your niece. I really hope she pulls through and gets all the support she needs. If they can, someone should bring her stuffed animals or her favorite clothes from home and bring them over.
If you need to talk to anyone btw, feel free to PM me

Goddamnit, I'm not trolling..weird shit just happens to me I guess..there's nothing in the news yet as it happened a few hours ago but if an article pops up online I'll post it.
#26
I'm just going to post this as I believe it should be compulsory in batshit insane threads like this.



EDIT: I just realized. You can't go home, yet you can find somewhere to log in and post a thread on UG about it.

I call bullshit.

Damn. Someone should film your life for MTV.

I'll assume this is real and wish you and your family all the best.

Would you rather he performed the surgery himself?

Wasn't the hitting friend with car one something about a school project? If it was, I remember watching the video, and he wasn't making it up.

Anyways TS, sorry to hear what happened. But please, make sure your dad buys a lock for the cabinet.

Mkay. I understand I've been insensitive... I shall leave now.

I still don't believe it though. Therefore it must be untrue.

TS, I'll feel like a jerk if this is actually true, but you've created a few threads discussing really really really unfortunate, unlucky, and improbable things happening to you, so I am a bit skeptical now. Are you BSing us, or are you the most interesting, unlucky man on earth?
