Look – I’m not saying anyone ever DESERVES anything like this. It’s pretty awful.
What I AM saying is that if you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes…
Now, I’ve actually heard of people blowing their faces off with fireworks before. In fact, last night people were telling me that a few years back, some dude looked down the barrel that shot out the big aerial fireworks, and it didn’t end well for him.
But this? Well, it sort of takes it to a whole new level.
According to Fox News:
A teen who attempted to rob a Texas fireworks stand Thursday ended up getting shot in the face with his own gun by one of the business’ employees, police said.
The attempted robbery occurred in Harris County at around 4 p.m. when the 19-year-old suspect approached the stand and demanded money, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.
An employee got the money and put it on the counter, according to ABC 13, and deputies said when the suspect placed the gun down to pick up the money, the employee picked up the firearm and shot the suspect in the face.
The teen, who wasn’t immediately identified, was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
It wasn’t clear whether the person was expected to survive.
See what I mean.
