A four-year-old Indiana boy is in critical condition today after a gun his father had concealed in his clothing discharged while the two were wrestling, police said.
The Herald-Times reported that the two were playing wrestling yesterday on a bed inside a home near Bloomington, Indiana, when the gun — which the 36-year-old father had concealed near the small of his back — fell and discharged one shot.
The boy and his father were both shot in the head, according to a news release from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
The boy was taken by helicopter to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, where he was listed in critical condition.
