A teenage boy has died after accidentally shooting himself in the head while posing for selfie with his dad’s gun. Ramandeep Singh, 15, from India, was trying to take a selfie with his sister and the 32-calibre revolver when the disaster occurred.
As he pointed the loaded gun at his head, he pulled the weapon’s trigger instead of clicking the photograph, shooting himself at close range.
The student was rushed to hospital with ‘critical’ head injuries after his sibling and concerned neighbours raised the alarm on Friday night, police said. He tragically succumbed to his wounds today, according to The Telegraph.
Ramandeep’s death is the latest in a growing list of selfie-related fatalities – a large proportion of which take place in India.
