In what might be the most American way to accidentally shoot oneself, a Florida man shot himself while bowling last night, after his bowling ball came into contact with the loaded gun in his pocket.
"The guy just stepped up to bowl," fellow-bowler Jim Miller told WPBF . "I think he hit his leg on his back swing."
The man shot himself around 7:30 last night while bowling at Jupiter Lanes. Another bowler reported that "The ball hit him in the leg, which triggered the revolver."
Witnesses originally thought the gunshot was a firecracker, but after watching the bowler limp back to his seat, holding his leg, they knew it was a gun.
He was taken to a hospital shortly after, but the man's injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.
