Man tests gun, shoots hole in his left hand
Wichita Eagle
June 21, 2006


This one might earn an honorable mention in the Darwin Awards, Wichita police say.

A 28-year-old man wanted to see whether his girlfriend's Walther .22 handgun was loaded, so he pulled the trigger -- and blew a hole in his left hand.

For some reason, Capt. Joe Dessenberger said, the man had placed his hand in front of the barrel as he pulled the trigger on Monday in east Wichita.

The man was treated at Wesley Medical Center.

He should have been looking down the barrel to see if the bullet was coming out.
