What is the first thing they teach us during gun safety courses? Treat every gun as if it is loaded, no matter what. This unfortunate incident happened in Aleppo, Syria in 2008.

This was during a wedding, and apparently, the man placed the gun on top of a table after firing shots into the air, thinking the gun was empty. During this time, he was distracted by the groom entering the reception and did not realize that his young son has gotten a hold of the pistol and accidentally shoots him upwards from his lower abdomen.

Unfortunately, the bullet penetrated his heart, he was pronounced dead at the hospital due to ventricular bleeding.

The video is posted here to raise gun safety awareness. It is age restricted, discretion is advised.
