A two-year boy shot in the neck with an air rifle by his father was critical but stable in hospital today.Pity he wasn’t aiming it at his own groin instead of his offspring. Now, that would have been amusing!
Blake Lowing was injured when Jamie Lowing, 29, accidentally fired the gun at him in his family home in Lincolnshire.
Mr Lowing, who was arrested after Monday's incident, was released on bail to be by his son's bedside, Lincolnshire Police said./facepalm
It is thought he fired the gun without knowing it was loaded.
As QuietMan points out, you always assume they are loaded and act accordingly!
