Teen accidentally shoots self in face
New Port Richey, Florida — A teenager has been hospitalized with facial injuries caused when a bullet he found fired while held in a vice, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office reported Wednesday.

The victim, Alex Carman, 15, was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with injuries to the right upper cheek.

Investigators say the Riverridge H.S. student found a 380 bullet on the side of a road, brought it home and put it into a vice. He apparently struck the the primer end of the bullet with a metal screw, causing it to fire.

Did it bounce back and hit him or was he just hit with shrapnel from the partially non-supported case? It would be kind of difficult to hit the primer with a screw with the bullet end facing you.

Either way, he's a idiot.

The question is, would he do it again?

What a bonehead! her
He was always doing stupid crap like that. It's a wonder he's still alive.

I guess I got all of the caution genes.

Wow, I bet he was horribly maimed by the primer when it popped out and hit him in the face. I guess there were no spork tragedies to report that day.

Alex Carman


I thought it said Cartman, that would explain it!

This guy at least lived, otherwise he would be competing for Darwin of the Year against the 3 hikers.
Maybe he'll get it right next year.

He was a smaller idiot before pulling that stunt. Maybe he'll land on the Darwin Awards list this year.

Hmmm... Clorine + gene pool

For awhile I thought it said 'fatal injuries' not 'facial injuries'.

I was like WTF? How could the bullet leave that fast from a unsupported case? Until I reread the paragraph.

If they would give his address, I'd send him a box of .45 ACP.
