Child shoots himself after watching film
A little Saudi boy watched a violent western move then went straight to his father’s coat, pulled out a gun and shot himself, a newspaper in the oil-rich Gulf kingdom reported on Saturday.
The father had rushed to his child when he saw him waving his loaded gun but a bullet went off and struck the boy’s bully, Kabar daily said in a report from the eastern town of Khobar.
“The boy was rushed to hospital, where he was admitted to the intensive care unit…the father said he had forgotten to unload his gun,” it said, without specifying the boy’s age or the film he had watched.
