LEHIGH ACRES, Fla., Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a man was hospitalized with burn wounds after accidentally shooting himself in the groin with a flare gun.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a medical assistance call Sunday in Lehigh Acres and arrived to find Jorge Perez, 23, with multiple burns and lacerations on his genital region, WZVN-TV, Fort Myers, reported Tuesday.

Perez told deputies he had loaded the flare gun and set it down Sunday. He later picked it up and, forgetting he had loaded it, fired it at the ground.

The man said the flare bounced off the floor and struck him in the genitals.

At least he didn't drink a 12-pack and then try to use it to scare the hiccups out of his buddy.

These things cause horrible burns. It's basically a 12-gauge shotgun shell with a lump of phosphorus in it.

Since authorities were involved, he should be billed. Stupid tax.


Also, same page... amusing picture to go along with Toddler's unbelievable basketball shots ('cause nobody really cares about the 2yo).

Best not to talk about that on OTW.

It's not that I'm scared you'll be disliked. I'm scared you might become more popular.

You worry too much. He did say his grandfather killed once, didn't he?

As I recall, the German army made lethal rounds that could be put into its flare guns (kind of like a shotgun shell or a small grenade), which is an awesome idea.

There's also a story about a WWI pilot whose guns jammed (or he ran out of ammo or something), and he fired his flare gun at the enemy and miraculously got it inside the plane, forcing it to land.

Why would anyone change their opinion based on something his grandfather had accomplished? Makes no sense.

They got a free trip to New York, though. You'd think the Today crew would be smart enough to see if he can really do it before wasting airtime on it looking like asses. :lol:

Reminds me of the guy who reported his kid was in the run-away balloon, and how the media went apeshit about it.
