Father Shoots Son in Cheek While Teaching Him About Gun Safety
|"You can aim over there, over there, and over there, son. Just not where there's somebody's face."|
That's why a father in St. Joseph took a moment with his eleven-year-old son to teach him about gun safety on Friday evening.
But then he accidentally shot him in the face.
They were in a bedroom, cleaning guns and planning a hunting trip, according to the News-Press, when the gun went off.
The boy was only a few feet away. The bullet ostensibly traveled through his hand and lodged into his jaw.
The boy was reportedly able to walk into the ambulance but was airlifted to a Kansas City hospital.
