Man shoots himself in groin with flare gun

LEHIGH ACRES, FL -

A 23-year-old man was taken to the hospital with multiple burn wounds after he accidentally shot himself in the genitals with a flare gun, according to the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to a home in Lehigh Acres Sunday in reference to a medical assistance call.

Upon arrival, 23-year-old Jorge Perez was found with multiple burn wounds and lacerations to his genital area.

Perez told deputies he was playing with a flare gun that was unloaded.

After dry firing the gun a few times, Perez says he then loaded the gun and put it down.

When he picked it up, Perez forgot the gun was loaded and fired it at the ground.

Perez told deputies the flare round struck the floor and ricocheted into his genital area.

Perez was taken to the hospital for his injuries.

3. I don't get this at all...

What am I missing? What is the entertainment value of playing with guns or in this case a flare gun?

4. What's the fun of flareguns?

It's a much more expensive way to have less interesting fireworks.

10. That was my thought too

 

the article didn't go into detail about the extent of the damage.
At least worthy of an honorable mention though.
