Elizabeth South of Giles County, Tennessee was cleaning her gun after a hunting trip when she unintentionally discharged the gun, shooting her 14-year-old son, Anthony, in the chest. A neighbor, who is also a nurse, rushed to help, giving Anthony CPR in an attempt to revive him.
"He moaned a few times," she said, "Had some gasping respirations, but I never go a word out of him."
Anthony was taken to the hospital where he later died. Elizabeth was also injured in the shooting, sustaining an injury to her hand.
" I cannot even imagine what she must be going through," said her neighbor.
The sheriff has ordered testing on the gun to see if it misfired or malfunctioned in any way.
