A two year old boy in Florida accidentally shot and killed his father after his parents left a loaded gun unattended. Police officers were alerted by a call on 911 and arrived at the spot to find the child’s mother trying to revive her husband by giving him CPR.
The gun was left in a bag on the ground and the 2 year old child came across it and shot his father in the back while he was playing a video game on a computer. All the five members of the family including a five month old baby girl were in the same room at the time of the incident.
Both parents were on parole at the time after multiple offenses of child neglect and drug use said the Sheriff. Such tragedies are not uncommon in the United States.
