A 26-year-old woman is expected to recover after her 3-year-old child accidentally discharged a gun, striking her in the head.
Police and rescuers were called to the home about 2:40 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20.
Few details were immediately available, but ambulance workers reported the woman was shot in the back of the head.
She was conscious and talking with rescuers.
She was transported to Spectrum Health Butterworth hospital.
I am sure that this young woman believed that a gun in the house made her family safer.
However the purpose of guns are to take lives, not protect life.
