A Seattle man is recovering after almost losing a limb. Was it a bear attack? Could it have been a Sasquatch battle? Nope. This guy lost a battle against an age-old foe: .
Police said a man accidentally shot himself in the testicles at a Lynnwood department store. Police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said the man was carrying his handgun in his waistband and it accidentally went off about noon Sunday.
She said he was wounded in the testicles and also in his leg and foot. No one else was hurt.
The man was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, but there was no immediate word on his condition.
Methinks someone needs to check the net and get edu-ma-cated on guns and the proper way to handle them. Guns don’t go off “accidentally,” kids. The man had his finger – or something else – on the trigger.
