Found this in today's Daily Mail, but all over the net as well.

A man in Deepwater USA accidententally shot his wife in the chest while trying to install a satellite dish.

Apparently he was trying to make a hole for the coax to go through and didn't have a drill. So decided to use his 0.22 calibre handgun.

The first shot didn't make it through the wall, but unfortunately the second shot somehow managed to hit his wife in the chest and kill her.

It has yet to be decided whether Ronald Long will be prosecuted for the incident that occurred on Saturday.


What a muppet!

Don't suppose that counts for the Darwin awards as he didn't shoot himself!
