September 30, 2014

If you left your backyard gate open and a kid got in and drowned in your pool, you would probably be charged with negligence or something similar. Knowing that makes people more careful with backyard pools! But people are rarely charged in these "tragic accidents," which is why they keep happening!

CLAYMONT, Del. (CBS) — A two-year-old is in critical condition after police say he accidentally shot himself in the head inside a home in Delaware Tuesday morning.

The shooting happened at about 10 a.m. in a home on Cliffside Court at the Valley Run Apartments in Claymont, Delaware.

According to investigators, officers with the New Castle County Police Department were called to the home for the report of a two-year-old who shot himself in the head.

Paramedics performed CPR at the scene and the child was eventually flown to Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in critical condition.

New Castle County Police Department officials said the child was at the home with his mother when the shooting occurred.
