A five day old boy was shot in the head “accidentally” by nearby hunters as he was being held by his father on their couch. Initial reports were that the child’s head was “grazed,” but a new report states the injury was more severe than initially stated and the bullet penetrated the child’s head:
The 5-day-old boy who was accidentally shot by hunters near Saltsburg Thursday night is more seriously injured than authorities first thought, according to Indiana County District Attorney Pat Dougherty.
“It was originally reported that the bullet had grazed the child’s head, but it had actually penetrated the child’s head,” Dougherty said.***
The injuries to the baby were an improbable accident, Dougherty said.
“Nobody would be able to make that shot if they tried,” he said. “It’s unbelievable.”
Who the fuck is trying to shoot a baby in the fucking head? And as someone in law enforcement, you’d think by now with the rash of accidental shootings that it is quite believable.
Trying to think positively, if the kid survives, the rest of his life just has to be easier. I mean, if you get shot in the head when you are five days old, karmically he’s pretty much owed some easy sailing from here on out.
