Joking A Round
2007 At-Risk Survivor

(2007, Michigan) Four friends were driving to Indiana when Leslie, 22, grabbed a gun from her friend. The owner of the gun had a proper license to carry the weapon. Leslie pointed the gun at her crotch... and fired off a round.

The bullet was found in the car by police. Hospital reports said the bullet entered the woman's groin and exited through her buttocks. When officers asked her why she shot herself, the woman told police she was "joking around."
