A 14-year-old Oak Grove, Alabama boy received a .22-caliber rifle as a present a few years ago. Recently, he was showing the gun to his 13-year-old friend in a shed behind his house. He thought the safety on the rifle was on when he pointed the gun at his friend and pulled the trigger. He thought wrong.
He ran inside and told his mother to call 911. The friend was taken to the hospital for surgery. The boy has been released from the hospital but the bullet remains lodged in his pelvic bone.
