Toddler accidentally ‘shoots himself in the head with gun’ – and SURVIVES


A TWO-year-old boy shot himself in the head while at home with family members in Kentucky, according to police. 

The boy found an unsecured gun and fired the weapon on Saturday night when adult family members were at their house in Flatwoods, Kentucky State Police trooper Bobby King told the Lexington Herald-Ledger.

He was transported about 20 miles away to Cabell Huntington Hospital in Huntington, West Virginia.

The boy is in stable condition, police said.

His identity was not immediately known.

The Kentucky State Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Sun on Monday.

Kentucky State Police Post 14 detectives responded to the scene after receiving a request for assistance in the incident.

The home is located on Summer Street in Greenup County, according to WSAZ.

As of Monday morning, no charges were filed in relation to the incident, according to King.

Flatwoods is about 120 miles northeast of Lexington. 

From 2013 to 2017, at least three dozen children in Kentucky accidentally shot themselves or another child with a gun that adults gave them or placed within grasp, the Herald-Ledger reported in July 2017. 

In most of those cases, police quietly closed their probes into the shootings without bringing criminal charges.
