Last night, in another thread I made the following obsevation...
Speaking of statistics, here is an interesting one...
In 2015, in the U.S. a toddler shoots either themself or someone else at a rate of once per week.
As of October, 13 children under the age of 3 had accidently(?) killed themselves with a firearm, 18 more had injured themselves, 10 injured someone else, and 2 killed someone else.
Just something to think about.
Not wanting to take that thread too far off topic I thought I would present this week's incident here...
Around 8:15 a.m. Friday, emergency crews responded to the report of a shooting in the 100 block of East Avenue B in South Hutchinson.
Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson said three-year-old Kaden Nagel found a loaded 40 caliber handgun in the home. The boy's father, Deputy Andrew Nagel, was in another room when he heard a gunshot.
Nagel rushed to find his son with a gunshot wound and administered first aid until EMS arrived, Henderson said.
Kaden was pronounced dead at the scene.
Please sent up thoughts and prayers for this family.
