Lahore – Pakistan: A boy from Lahore accidentally shoots himself in the leg while making TikTok video with a pistol at EME society of Punjab capital Lahore.
The boy got pistol from a security guard
Ghulamullah, 18, borrowed a loaded gun from a security guard to record a TikTok video but accidentally shot himself in the leg.
His cousin, Babar Hussain, rushed him to Jinnah Hospital where he received treatment. The doctors eventually declared him to be out of danger but he is still under treatment.
Earlier, a similar incident transpired in May when another teenager shot himself dead while making a video at his home in Bhit Shah Town, Matiari district, Sindh.
The Station House Officer (SHO) of the Bhit Shah police station, Karam Ali Umrani, stated that Taha Rajpoot, 14, was alone in his bedroom when his family heard a gunshot and rushed to his bedroom. They found the door locked from the inside and forced it open but found that the boy had already died.
The SHO, who observed the crime scene, detailed that Taha was apparently filming a TikTok video when he either intentionally or accidentally shot himself. He added that the incident was being investigated to determine whether it was an accident or suicide.
