We all know that children should be kept away from sharp and deadly objects, as this might harm them and others around. But its time that you should keep your pets away from these objects too. An Oklahoma woman underwent emergency surgery after being accidentally shot by a puppy last week.
Brent Parks and Tina Springer were in his pick-up truck with his yellow labrador, Molly in the front seat. They stopped to let a train go by. Parks told police his handgun was resting in the center console when a train passed by, spooking Molly and causing her to step on the gun.
The gun let off one around and the bullet hit Springer in her left thigh, just above the knee. In an audio recording of Park’s emergency call, obtained by the local broadcast station, he can be heard saying that the victim was bleeding pretty bad and help was needed.
The man can be heard saying : No she didn’t do it herself. It just went odd. We had a dog in here and it stepped on the gun. Later in the call, the dispatcher then reportedly told Parks to remove his belt to use as a tourniquet. He tied it around her leg above the wound to reduce bleeding. Springer can be heard screaming for help above the wound to reduce bleeding. Police responded to the call around 2:30 p.m. Springer was then rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery and is expected to recover.
